please help rubber band ligation failed twice

I had rubber band ligation done on 3 internal second degree haemorrhoids about 6 months ago under sedation and this didnít work, so 19 days ago I had it done again this time under a general anaesthesia. All seemed brilliant for 16 days, I am a strict vegetarian who worksout 4 days a week, walks miles and does yoga. However on day 14 I started to feel the ache again and on day 16 bleed after BM. Went to my doctors, couldnít see her so had to see the practice nurse who looked at my bum saidthey had done a good job as it looked Ďneatí. I told her they were high up internal so she inserted her finger about a cm in to my bum and said she couldnít feel anything and she gave me suppositories, saying it was trauma, oh and a new prescription of ispaghula husk.

Anyway I am still bleeding with BM, quite a lot, the poo is streaked on the outside and my bum aches.

Do you all think they have come back, again, or could this bleeding be caused by a late band falling off?

Has anyone else had zero success with rubber banding, I donít want to go back to the hospital, I feel like a freak, please help.

you need surgery, i had 3 internal hemmroids removed,you will stop
bleeding and be normal again,if you have this problem recuuring all the
time,make sure you get a colorectal surgen to do it,it is a pain full recovery
but i am happy i did it to get back to a normal life.bands do not remove
all the hemroid you need to cut it out or you will keep bleeding at that site,
it seems that rubber band did not work
good luck

Thanks for your reply, did you have the banding done?

I can't understand why they disn't cut them out whilst I was under, they new I had an imporant test coming up, maybe that was why.

I am under specialists at the hospital and they were found by flexible signoidocaphy and I have also had a barium enema, I am only 30.

How long was you recovery?

Thanks again

recovery is not pretty,you will have pain,bleeding and discomfort.but if your having to do rubber band ligation and it keeps failing ,you need surgery.
i had a top colorectal surgen tell me that surgery is the only way to
permantly cut it off so it wiil not cause any more issue at the problem area.
it took me two months two recover, but bleeding stop after a week and never returned.i recommend you start on colace ,its a stool softer and is safe to use every day,try a fiber drink ,flaxmeal with juice a tablespoon is enought,
and drink a lot of will have to HAVE SOFT PROPELLING BM after
surgery or you will be impacted due to pain killers.start this regine now so
you will not have any of those issue after sugery. they will not go away
and will get worst if you do not address it, you can let them take over your life of do somethig and get on with your life.
good luck
