So it turns out I have a pretty nasty case of hemorrhoids. Don't get me wrong. I'm glad it's hemorrhoids and not something more sinister like a fissure or cuffitis, but otherwise it's been pretty unpleasant. I'm obviously using the ointment, wipes and soaks and doing all the things as prescribed, the issue is that due to the frequency of my bms (6 - 8 a day) my behind isn't getting the "downtime" it needs for the inflammation to subside. BMs have been excruciating.
Just wondering if anyone has any good tips for dealing with hemorrhoids?
ETA - I'm not super keen to take bowel slowers regularly as I've had a number of partial obstructions due to adhesions and would prefer to avoid bunging things up.
