Scared about hemmeriods,....
Anon_227686 posted:
I am 35 and for the first time in my lift I had am inflamed hemmeriod and it was so painful I couldn;t sit or stand any movement hurt. It bulged out and I was scared to death to look at it so I went to the gastro. DR. she said it was a external hemorrhoid and it was full of blood but because I never spotted blood and by the 3rd day it was getting smaller she didn't do anything to it, but sometime they do when there's blood involved. About 2 weeks later I get another one,buldgeing out but not painful so I used the prescription cream continuously and this one is not going down. Its been like going on 6 days and still there. I called the Dr. on the 4th day they said use cream and sitz baths and that's it. So im scared why isn't it going away? I'm using stool softeners everyday to help. Can this be a sign of getting colon problems? What else can I do??? Any help would be appreciated.

Anon. I had exactly what you had. It scarred me to death especially when the "hemorrhoid" busted and I saw all this blood in the toilet. I went straight to the ER. After using creams and home remedies, I still had the problem for at least a year and a half. Finally I went to see a colon/rectal specialist (M.J.Worsey) in San Diego. He told me that I did not have an hemorrhoid but rather it was a fissure in that area. He prescribed a compound medication. Whithin a month a was fine and that was about a year ago. I hope you are doing better by now. If not, please seek for a specialist, not just a gastroenterologist. Good luck!
