Discussions that mention vicodin

Bowel Disorders board


I went ahead and called the doctor to let them know the pain was more than when the rubber band was on.

They asked if I was drinking plenty of water (I am), and if the pain medicine was working.

I told them I did not get any pain medicine, so they called in some vicodin for me.

I took a pill and I feel better than I have since the band went on.

Hopefully the medicine will allow me to have a complete bowel movement. I believe that since I cannot have a full bowel movement, the pressure makes it hurt.

I hope this works.
Pain pills like vicodin are constipating, keep away, drink water, have fiber and dont worry about the BM it will come on it's own.

Again what procedure did you have?
Was it the "O’Regan Disposable Hemorrhoid Banding System", or the traditional type?

The O'Regan uses a syringe type instrument whereas the traditional uses a metal clamp to grasp the roid and apply the band, which is what causes the pain, again this is according to the doctor treating me

I agree!! Please becareful! Vicodin is the reason I got external hemmorhoids in the first place. I was prescribed it after a surgery and I was so constipated that it caused the externals that I have now.
