Default Can we talk hemorhoids?

I am not that familiar with them, but my poor husband has had one for 2 months that has been painful with sitting. He has used those creams and pads with no relief.

Being the devoted wife I am I took a look see. It is fingertip size and not reddened or anything.

Anybody know what they do these days to remove them? How odious is the procedure?

Can't believe this is my 1st ever butt thread

They can laser them off now, but I don't know any more than that.

Office procedure (or home, if you both are up for it): tight suture wrapped and knotted around the base; necroses and falls off in a few days.
Or you can take advantage if your health insurance and have them done c laser or ligated outpatient.

I don't think I will try this at home LOL.

He has an appt. upcoming, but I wanted the real info from my fellow nurses going in so i can weigh his options carefully. I am a "least invasive" and easiest recovery kind of person.

I've had them for years. My father had them and he had a lot of trouble with them. I usually don't. Maybe it's my diet, I don't know, but they're simple there and I don't do anything more than use hemorrhoidal wipes after I have a b.m.
