I had a really bad D attack 4 months ago and developed an external hemorrhoid. (I know, they usually come from C not D...I'm unusual). I tried several of the creams I usually use for irritations-didn't work. Went to the Dr., he recommended a different cream and sitz baths w/epsom salts-didn't work. Tried some other ointments people told me about. Nothing makes it go away, so I relied on my old faithful A & D ointment just to lubricate it daily. Then, I got yeast infection(which I haven't had in 10yrs,) and I think it's because the A & D spread & trapped the moisture in. I need to get rid of it! What's surgery like? Can you drive after and can you walk without pain? Do you need to find a REALLY good Dr. or can most do it well? Any info will be really appreciated.......Thanks very much, G.L.
