I have a history of external hemorrhoids...sometimes they end up thrombosed. I started Tuesday after a normal BM and it hurt a little but not too bad. Thurs night it doubled in size and became increasingly painful. It is now very large and painful. I'm using hydrocortisone suppositories and some Preparation H on the outside. I'm also soaking in hot tubs...all the right things. I know these can take up to 2 weeks to resolve. We are supposed to leave on vacation tomorrow. Would going to the ER to get this taken care of result in a faster recovery??? Just don't want to be misreable on vacation.
I know your post is from June, however I just wanted to say that I had my thrombosed hemorrhoid cut and drained and it was so so painful. Now two days later I have another one that popped up. I am going to try baths and creams. I never want to have another drained
I know it's been a month from your last posting. I have a question. Did they just drain or completely cut out your external? Also, how much time elapsed between you getting the external hemmie and having it worked on?
