This site always gives good advice. This has not been the best two weeks. Started with a flare up of pouchitis which my doctor added a second antibiotic to my regime of 2x/day Cipro. Seemed to calm it down but made me too sick and nauseous so I stopped. The stomach is doing a bit better so the bathroom trips are more normal but in it's place I've got terrible hemorrhoids and back pain! When I went to see the doctor for the pouchitis, he had his resident examine me and she noted it was a skin tag - I think she may be wrong. My doctor never even examined me which has me kind of frustrated. It got worse after the visit. I am now about four days in with terrible hemorrhoid / skin tag? pain and back pain at night. I can barely walk around. They just started me on Anusol HC? Anybody had luck with that? Will this resolve over time?
I welcome thoughts/suggestions. I am very scared of the thought of hemorrhoid surgery since I hear it is horribly painful and I can't take pain meds etc. Are there other options?
