Anyone else have hemorrhoids?

I've had one forever. I guess they are a real pain to have treated. So far it's behaving itself.

I've had them before they're a pain, they should be called asteroids instead, anyway I treated them myself and they went away after a few weeks, so far I haven't had them in awhile.

[@481833,spice1] what did you do?
spice1 · 46-50, M
[@391032,Tastyfrzz] I used the preparation H cream and also the wipes, it also helps if you sit in a hot bath for awhile to get the blood flowing.

[@481833,spice1] yep. Do that.

I thought I had one about 20 years ago, but it turned out to be an anal fissure. So I had to have a surgery to fix it.

[@1202599,ScottR] how long did it take to heal?
ScottR · 51-55, M
[@391032,Tastyfrzz] well I had some stitches and the main thing you use your butt for is a bowl movement. So seemed like I was better in a few weeks.

[@1202599,ScottR] the doctor said I'd need to take four weeks off from work if I had surgery.

Yes, I have one currently and have had one before. It seems to be fairly minor and has gone away before. 🤷‍♂️

[@541612,Nate931] yeah, I notice that this one comes and goes.
SW User
[@391032,Tastyfrzz] Yeah I guess that's how they often are for some. If it got worse or wasn't going away I'd consider doing something more about it.

[@1202324,Manzi] anything special?
Manzi · 51-55, M
[@1202324,Manzi] [@391032,Tastyfrzz] preparation h and tuss pads
Tastyfrzz · 56-60, M
[@1202324,Manzi] mine doesnt hurt much. It's just a swelling.
