banding hemorroids????

I am 7 months pregnant, so surgery right now is out of the question. But I just developed about 2 wks ago a nice hemorroid. I got them when I had my dd also, but I was able to use creams and they would shrink and be gone, well this time around I have purchased everything under the sun, over the counter and it only irritates it more. Well I went to my ob today and he said yeah that looks like it hurts, trying to be funny, and he told me about banding them. Has anyone ever had this done? I was wondering what exactly they do and does it hurt? I mean I am in pain now, how long does it take to shrink after banding? just curious on others thoughts about it. I got no sleep last night at all, and was so embarrassed to go to the docs today, but what else was I gonna do. thanks all

Re: banding hemorroids????

I thought I would respond since you have not gotten a response yet

I don't know anything about banding hemorroids, but if you are in that much pain and creams don't work, band it!! Hopefully someone else will respond with some actual info about how long it takes for the banding to work?

Good luck - I hope you find some relief soon!

Re: banding hemorroids????

lol I wish I could do it myself lol, it is so embarrassing to have to sit there with your rear in the air, and let a doc that would normally not see the other area, see it. I have done some reading, and it seems to be that it won't hurt much, but I am scared. I am almost wondering if I should just wait it out and wait til I give birth, 9 wks. hmmmmm. not sure lol.

I have done reading, and for any of you out there that wants to know, just don't wanna ask lol, this is how it is supposed to work. I believe you sit on the table with your rear in the air, yeah, then they take and look inside to see what is going on, they take a instrument with a small rubber band on the end and put it around the base of the hemorroid. Within a week, the band is supposed to stop blood flow and kill the hemorroid and it and the band is supposed to just fall off, with minimal bleeding and pain ( ) and it should take about 2 wks to completly heal. They do it right in the docs office, takes a few minutes to do. I am still kinda scared though. Any thoughts on this? It sounds to me as if it kills it so it don't come back, kinda like a surgery, just less invasive, but then you don't feel the surgery lol, or sit there with your rear in the air. Oh well, I will wait a few more days and see how I feel with the prescription they gave me. I also ordered for $35 a Zenmed Ziro cream, that is supposed to be really good. It better be for that kinda money.

Hope no one else is suffering like me

Re: banding hemorroids????

Just a friendly warning - if you have them now, try and take as much care of them as possible. They only get worse when you're pushing baby out

I know lol, I had them with dd and was able to get them to shrink, and they just came back after I had her, that is why I am thinking about having the banding done, this way, that one at least won't be there anymore lol. thanks

Re: banding hemorroids????

Boo - You can get them at any time, but they tend to be common during pregnancy due to the pressure on your bottom. They usually cause bleeding during bowel movements and are sometimes painful. You would probaby be able to feel a large lump by your anus if you had them.
