Re: Hemorrhoid banding, when does this pain stop?
I am so so sorry for all of your discomfort. I know that my Sister-in-Law had one of hers banded after pregnancy and she said that the discomfort lasted about 3 days. Once they fell off, she was fine. The pain is from the painful blood clot that has been formed due to the tight rubber band placed around the hemorrhoid. Once they fall of, your pain should dramatically improve. I know you are in a lot of pain right now, but just remember, it will be over soon, as opposed to the traditional, when your recovery could be as long as 6 months or so. This is definitely a better way to go. Please keep us informed of your recovery and let us know when you start feeling some relief. By the way, have you called your doctor about this? Did he say when the pain might subside?
