Hemorrhoid banding recovery

It's going to be a month on Monday since I had three internal grade two hemorrhoid bandings. I still feel burning when I have a bowel movement. There is very little blood. Is this normal? I asked my doctor and I guess he was not in a good mood. He told me the only way I will get rid of hemorrhoids was to have my anus removed. WTH type of answer is that? Doesn't he remember that he banded them?

I have a friend that had her hemorrhoids banded years ago and told me that it took her about 3-4 months to completely heal from the surgery. This is gross,I know,but she told me that the only way she could move her bowels was in tub full of warm water or using a sitz bath. I guess having her anus submerged in the water was very soothing and made it a lot less painful to move her bowels that way.

Thanks for the reply. Banding it's not easy. I feel for your friend. I have to put tons of vaseline.

Re: Hemorrhoid banding recovery

I had my hemmies banded 4 years ago, it hurt like hell and a few bands were fired astray which hurt even more, I couldn't sit down properly for months, the only thing that helped were ice packs, the recovery is definitely not easy and I developed a fissure as a result of the banding which added tons more misery and pain, in 2010 I had LIS and Fissurectomy surgery for my fissure and the recovery from that was horrific, now 2 years on from that I'm about 98% better (pain free). Any surgery performed on or in the anus will result in a lot of pain, something I wasn't informed of.

Re: Hemorrhoid banding recovery

I called my doctor today about why I'm still bleeding after a month. This is what he said. To give it another week, if it continues to schedule another sig and banding. He said he forgot to tell me that he think one rubber band didn't take well. That sometimes the equipment is deffective. WTH? why didn't he say that to me the day of the procedure? Why now? Why did he put everything was fine in the report he gave me? I'm going to another G.I.
