Re: Well here goes: Rectal Skin Tags
I had painless internal hemorroids for 8 years
Mine unfortunately bled really badly over time (eg. clots of blood) and I ended up having to receive 2 blood transfusions.
Last year I took a deep breath and went to see a Colon/rectal Doctor who was brilliant and said he would use Rubber Band ligation to get rid of 3 large internal hemorroids.
I had the 3 banded over a 3 month period (one per month) (the procedure was done in his office and took 2 mintutes to apply the band) and I am totally cured, no bleeding at all and the procedure for me personally was good with only slight dull ache for a few hours after band was applied.
You would probably only get recommended this procedure if your bleeding was really bad like mine.
I think the actual painful hemmorroid surgery you are thinking of is mainly done on external hemmorrids as they cannot be cured by Banding.
So if Banding is ever given as an option for you, i highly recommend it.
As long as your doctor only bands one hemmorroid at a time per session.
Some doctors will band 3 in one session which can be a more longer painful recovery time.
Obviously the natural cure is, diet and drinking plenty of water which sounds like what you are doing already.
Good luck and take care and let us know how you get on.
