Re: pain after hemorrhoid banding
I was booked in by my doctor to see a consultant for a bleeding bottom, whom I saw 1.5 days ago, I assumed for an initial chat. He didn't speak much English. I lay on my side so he could examine me, he did a quick probe with finger, then said he was going to put a telescope or something up. Then he said he was done (less than 1 minute total) and told me to get dressed. He then told me he had fitted a hemarroid band, didn't tell me or ask or anything in advance! I didn't even know I had a hem before I went in as doc couldn't find any, though knew it was quite likely. It has felt aching since, but tonight (2:40am) cannot sleep cos of tummy ache. I rubbed anus to try and stimulate poo for about 20 mins and a fair bit of wind came out but no bm. I then ate some muesli and took 2 nuerofen (ibuprofen). It has subsided a bit now.
My muscles all feel really taught around scrotum as though they've been pulled hard and bum has dull ache. My pain pain though is a tummy ache more so than at the site of the band, enough to reawaken me after I eventually fell asleep. Is this normal?
