Anyone experiences difficult hemorrhoids? Aside from medical procedure, does TCM help?

Posted by

My close relative, in her 50s, experiences hemorrhoids. 1 inward and 1 outside. Doc told her to go for a procedure that needs GA and 1 day healing, and up to 2 weeks to recuperate. She is frightened of surgery. I want her to go for it as she's suffered this for years, but i cant persuade her. Aside from medical procedure, does TCM help? Anybody here been for the medical procedure previously?

Hi Ed

Can walk but painful to pass motion or urinate. The pain will last for a while. 1-2 weeks minimum.

The surgery is definitely worth it. Half a day in hospital until the anesthetic over and you can go home.

2 weeks no solid and spicy food, eat lots of papaya/banana and soft diet. Get a few round swimming float to go around when you sit.

Depends on your tolerance level, my colleague went back to work the next day

Actually its just an external surgery.

I will go for the surgery anytime. 

But then again, its an old lady.

changing her diet to include more fibre can help with her symptoms i think. and not using handphone when in toilet, which reduces time on toilet bowl. i think if her pile is at risk of having blood supply cut off, then she def needs surgery. i suggest going with her together to the doctor so u can better advice her?
