Piles

The lining of the anal canal contains three soft, spongy pads of tissue that act as an extra seal to keep the canal closed until you go to the lavatory. The lining of the gut is very slimy (so that faeces can pass along easily); the extra seal stops the slime (mucus) from leaking out. The pads contain a network of tiny blood vessels.

What are piles?

People sometimes think that piles (haemorrhoids) are like varicose veins of the legs (i.e. a single vein that has become swollen). This is not the case. A pile is one of the soft pads that has slipped downwards slightly, because the surrounding tissue is not holding it in place properly (British Medical Journal 2008;336:380–3). When this happens, the small blood vessels within the cushion become engorged with blood, so the cushion swells up. When faeces are passed, the pile may be pushed further down the anal canal to the outside, and this is called a prolapsed pile. Doctors classify piles into three types.
 
First-degree piles are swollen cushions that always remain within in the anal canal; these are painless.
 
Second-degree piles are pushed down (prolapsed) when faeces are passed, but return to their starting position afterwards.
 
Third-degree piles are pushed down (prolapsed) when faeces are passed, or come down at other times. They do not go back by themselves after faeces have been passed.

Who gets piles?

Piles can occur at any age, but are more common in older people. They affect both men and women. In fact, most people suffer from piles at some time, but usually they are nothing more than a temporary problem. Many experts believe that they are caused by continuous high pressure in the veins of the body, which occurs because humans stand upright. They are particularly common in pregnancy because of the additional pressure from the baby, and because of hormonal changes. Sometimes they result from straining hard to pass faeces, which is more likely if you do not eat enough fibre, or lifting heavy weights. They are not caused by sitting on hot radiators or cold, hard surfaces, or by sedentary jobs.

What are the symptoms of piles?

The symptoms of piles can come and go. There are five main symptoms:
  • bleeding, with bright red blood
  • itching and irritation
  • aching pain and discomfort
  • a lump, which may be tender
  • soiling of underwear with slime or faeces (‘skid marks’).
Itching and irritation probably occur because the lumpy piles stop acting as soft pads to keep the mucus in; instead, a little mucus leaks out and irritates the area around the anus. Pain and discomfort comes from swelling around the pile, and from scratching of the lining of the anal canal by faeces as they pass over the lumpy area. The scratching also causes bleeding, which is a fresh bright red colour and may be seen on faeces or toilet paper or dripping in the pan. A pile that has been pushed down (a second- or third-degree pile) may be felt as a lump at the anus.

How you can help yourself

Most piles get better in a few days without any treatment, but there are several ways of relieving the discomfort.
  • Wash the area gently with warm, salty water, to get rid of irritant mucus that has leaked out. Dry carefully with cotton wool and apply petroleum jelly (available from pharmacies) or nappy rash cream to protect your skin if more mucus or moisture leaks out.
  • Use soft toilet paper, and dab rather than wipe.
  • Wear loose underwear and clothing (i.e. not tight trousers), so that nothing will rub the pile.
  • Do not scratch. For more information on dealing with itch, look at the section on anal itching.
  • Avoid constipation by eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and bran cereal. Aim for faeces that are soft enough to change their shape as you push them out.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • After you have passed the faeces, do not strain to finish. People with piles often think there is more to come, but this is a false sensation caused by the swollen spongy pads in the piles themselves. Do not read on the toilet and aim to be out of the toilet within a minute.
  • If you can feel a lump, try pushing it gently upwards; try to relax your anus as you do so.
  • If you have a lot of discomfort, buy a haemorrhoid cream or gel. A pharmacist will be able to help you choose one that is suitable for you. A haemorrhoid cream or gel does not cure the pile, but will usually relieve the discomfort effectively until the pile goes away of its own accord. Do not use it for longer than a week or two.

To stop piles returning, continue the high-fibre diet to keep your stools soft and do not put off opening your bowels, and avoid straining.

When to see your doctor

See your doctor if the symptoms last longer than a week. You should also see your doctor if you have bleeding, to ensure that there is not some other cause. Your doctor will examine your anus, feel inside the anal canal and may also insert a small metal tube, called a proctoscope, an inch or two into the anal canal to give a better view. For more information, look at the section on seeing your doctor about an anal problem.

What your doctor can do

First- and second-degree piles usually go away on their own if constipation is avoided, but your doctor may prescribe a short course of haemorrhoid cream to relieve symptoms. Third-degree piles may also go away on their own, but if they persist, they may need hospital treatment.
 
Only a few people need an operation; most are treated by banding or phenol injections. There is usually no need for a general anaesthetic or to stay in hospital overnight for these procedures. Stretching (anal dilatation) was a popular treatment in the 1970s, but is seldom used now.
 
'Venotonic' drugs are popular treatments for piles in Europe (especially France) and in the Far East. The most common are the so-called 'flavonoid' chemicals such as diosmin, hidrosmin, hesperidin and rutosides. Researchers have looked at all the evidence on these drugs, and have concluded that it is not possible to say whether they are effective because most of the research studies have been flawed in one way or another (British Journal of Surgery 2006;93:909–20).
 
Banding involves placing a small rubber band at the base of the pile, so that it pinches the lining of the anal canal. This ‘strangles’ the pile, so it dies and falls off. It causes some scarring. It is more effective than the other treatments but has some drawbacks, such as severe bleeding in a few cases. There fore you need to tell the surgeon if you are on blood-thinning medication. Some people feel faint and nauseous just after the bands are put on, and they can be quite painful for the following 48 hours. According to an article in the British Medical Journal (2003;327:8847–521), the success rate for banding is:
  • 79% of piles are cured
  • 18% of piles return so that repeat banding is needed
  • for 2% of piles, it does not work at all.

Injection of phenol in almond oil is a method of causing scarring in the area, but produces a permanent cure in only about 25% of cases. It is less commonly used now, because the results are not as good as with banding.

Cryosurgery freezes the pile to destroy it. It is not used much, because it causes a watery discharge afterwards.
 
Infrared coagulation uses infrared light to destroy the pile. This method is not commonly used, because it is not as effective as other methods.
 
Surgery. There are several different operations for piles.
  • In the usual operation, the swollen spongy pad that forms the pile is cut away. It is painful for 7–10 days afterwards.
  • A newer operation, called ‘stapling’, involves cutting away a 2 cm strip of the lining of the rectum and joining the cut edges with a special stapler. People seem to recover quicker from ‘stapling’ than from the ordinary operation. It is not yet a common operation in the UK, but it is popular in the rest of Europe. Although it is less painful than the ordinary operation, it seems to be less effective in the long-term and about 12% of people have a recurrence of the piles within 16 months (Surgery 2006;24(4):148–50). However, more research is needed.
  • Another type of operation uses ultrasound to locate the arteries that feed blood into the pile. These arteries are then closed off using stitches. Bleeding from the pile decreases over the following few weeks. This treatment is becoming more popular, partly because it does not involve any cutting and is almost painless. More research is needed to see if it is effective in the long-term.

I had suffered from haemorrhoids back in either 2012 or 2013. My doctor performed a banding procedure. I've since seen my doctor and everything he could see checked out fine. However I still have problems with slight bleeding. Every time I past waste either soft or solid when I wipe it never seems right. It will seem like i'm ok, but once I'm up and moving around my anal passage will begin to flare up. Sometimes, if left alone it begins to bleed. I literally have to get some soap and water to clean the area out again because wiping with TP and water is not enough. It's like waste just sitting around in that area waiting to seep even after you've wiped yourself clean. I go walking some days and once I have a bowel movement I'm literally afraid that once my body begins to perspire(as moisture does build up in the anus when walking, exercising or jogging) it will begin to affect that area and I've no place to stop and fix the problem. I thought that when I had the surgery I'd have gone back to normal but it seems that I'm still having problems and I'm not sure how to tackle it. As I had been back to the doctor and he told me that all checks out fine and has instructed me what to do but it hasn't seemed to help. The only thing that seems to help is the wet wipes, but I don't want to be dependent on wet wipes to solve the problem. I should have been able to have a bowel movement wipe and be fine. But after a year I'm still having trouble.

have had internal from specialist and it was not comfortable at all. Told I have a rectal/prolapse sent for enterocele awaiting results going for an ultrasound anal not sure of name for it then getting results. Not happy as doctor will not remove haemoroids only do a prolapse op. Will also need to have physio for muscles after all of this. Why cannot piles be removed at same time as prolapse. I do not feel my prolapse comes out it is only piles that are outside of my body. Please respond with reply.

I had hemorrhoid surgery 8 wks ago it was the worst pain I have ever had and I have 3 babies . I have had to take 2courses of antibiotics but nothing helped . I contacted my consulted who admitted me back into hospital and put me under anaesthic and injected Botox into the muscle to relax the spasms , that was two wks ago it has helped a little but but I am still in severe pain after each bowel motion and that's me taken laxatives and diclofenic tabs for pain relief everyday . I deeply regret going for this surgery as my concultant said i would be grand after two weeks of surgery.

Posted by Optional on 13/10/2013 at 01:15

I think I have second-degree piles. It doesn't happen often tho, maybe 4, 5 times a year and normally return to their starting position within 1, 2 days. I have realized that when I masturbate or have a hard on it helps relax the muscles of the anus.

I'm having a hemorrhoidectomy in 4 weeks, there cutting one out and banding the others. Has anybody had this done and is it as bad as they say?

Posted by nj on 22/07/2013 at 05:21

after trying rubber band, had THD procedure which was done under sedation. It was a quick procedure and after 1 week I landed in hospital with severe rectal bleeding and clots. Everything I read says THD is good because the artery feeding the roid is tied off...I was 1% with complications.

Posted by Optional on 22/07/2013 at 04:03

I think I have piles but not really as what is described. It started as terrible irritations in my anal canal. I treated it with hot water and anticeptic thinking it was a bacteria infection. Now I have about two or three very tiny, painless but seemingly growning lumps of tissue on the light Skin just between my anal canal and my pelvic bone. What Kind of piles are these?

Posted by Relieved! on 21/05/2013 at 02:22

I have been living with piles for 10 years. Was too embarrassed to go to the doctor or seek advice and so it grew and it grew. It became so bad that I was forced to seek medical help. I had surgery done, they were cut out. the first 4 days were hell. Could not sleep, could not get comfortable enough to get the much needed rest I needed. Was even afraid to eat because what goes in must come out and having a bowl movement was like having a torture session. You take pain killers but it gives you constipation so its better to just grin and bear it. Many warm baths later, many sachets of laxatives later I am able to live normally again. As with any procedure there is a certain amount of pain that goes with it. My advice! go to the doctor as soon as they start to show, prevention is better than cure. If surgery has to be done don't delay it, get it over and done with so that you can get back to living a pain free life. YES!! the pain will be immense the first 3 or 4 days but it will subside. Take many warm baths, it helps with the pain. What helped me most was getting a good nights sleep, the pain was so bad that I could not rest and the pain killers wore off after a couple of hours. I remembered that my GP prescribed me sleeping pills a week or two before I had my surgery done. I started taking them. I had my first good nights rest since my procedure and it felt good. I feel that because I took the sleeping pills I rested enough and it facilitated a speedy recovery.

I had 2 internal piles banded a month ago. I'm taking fibrogel every day. I'm still in pain following a bowel motion, on a bad day it feels like a raw wound having salt rubbed in and lasts for around 10 hours. I was given a leaflet that stated discomfort for a few days but doesn't say anymore. The consultant had so many people to see I didn't get to ask questions. I feel uncomfortable most of the time. Dread going to the loo every day. I don't know enough to think its normal because he just said take laxative and goodbye. Frustrated with living with this pain in the ass.

I would like to add another comment that may help. My first movement of the day is painless. I eat breakfast and within an hour I need to go again. This time I am in excrutiating pain. Consultant thinks this is related to irritable bowl syndroun. High fibre as I mentioned before (Fybogel) from chemists after a week, I believe has severely reduced the pain and burning. Reduced the acid level in my bowels. Not a cure, but seems to have helped.

Posted by JohnH on 21/12/2012 at 12:58

Had Banded Ligation 18 Months ago. Then this soft thing that I kept slipping back in became a Lump. The size of a marble. Afraid it was cancerous I made the wrong decision and kept it to myself for a year. Eventually I went back to my Doctor last September. Got hospital appointment 2 Oct 2012. They banded it again. Have been in daily pain since then. Prolapsed Pile. A dagger ripping my bum apart or a red hot poker stuck up it. Can't walk for more than half an hour. Speand most of the day lying down. Saw Consultant again 11 dec. Operation to cut it out 8 JAN 2013. Given high fibre (Fybogel). Uncomfortable still, but most pain and burning has eased. Don,t leave it too long. Get over the embarressment and visit your Doctor. Pray for me. Two weeks to go.

I have been using Analcare, it is really good. I am 26 weeks pregnant with my first child. I have been suffering with piles for the last three weeks. It has been the itching that has been driving me mad. Like most people I went to my doctor who suggested Prep H. This was ok for for a few minutes but the itch kept coming back, at night it was alot worse. My midwife was the one who suggested Analcare, she had a few free tubes to give to her new mums to try. I am so pleased she picked me because it was amazing, it stopped the itch within minutes and the best news it stopped the itching all day aswell. There is a website on the www.analcare.co.uk so I have just bought another tube from them. Great site by the way, I really know what everyone is going through.

To Arthi, thank you for your comment. It's good to hear that our information on piles can be used for prevention too. Keep spreading the word.

My dad is suffering with this problem and he's got his one assumptions on it, he thinks it worsens n pains due heat in the body . Etc etc..But as he was planing to go for a operation, I thought let me understand this thing better n then I found this article. This was definitely very helpful for me to understand . I think it's pretty easy to avoid piles if u follow a good diet, lovely article for people not just suffering from piles, but also for people who would never want to have such health issues n want to be healthy n happy. I would definitely recommend n share dis page .

I was really worried bout this it felt like pineworms at first and that i needed to go so i pushed but nothing jys wet it was when i wiped and looked down the toilet i saw blood as i write this i having a itchy irritation feeling sometimes light burning so worried i was so thanks for ur help

Posted by somuss on 07/10/2012 at 05:47

this was very helpful. I thought something was wrong with me with what i have read on other websites. I feel better reading this cos that's what exactly happens. It comes especially when pushing too hard when pooping, and eventually goes away after a few days. No bleeding. Just discomfort and a little bit of pain.

Posted by Optional on 02/10/2012 at 01:05

I had this problem when I was about 11 because of constipation. I was too embarassed to tell anyone so I just suffered it. I was terrifie to go to the toilet and on occasions messed myself. I grew up, they went away and I forgot about it til now. there has always been a fair size mound that came down when I 'went' but this time it wouldnt go back. Ive been in agony and really panicked that it could be serious. I bought some Germoids cream which helps. 4 days later and its still there but Im hoping it just goes away again. Thanks for this article and comments, its reassuring to know how common and treatable it is.

Posted by J on 14/08/2012 at 10:34

I've suffered with piles for 5 years now and think I have stumbled onto a solution, I dont know where I read about it but an artical was going on about not eating certain meats, I decided to just stop eating meat all together and after about 2 weeks my piles were painless, it's very hard to give it up but I notice that when i do eat meat I have more digestive problems than noticed before, it's made such a huge difference to me and hopefully it can help others too :)

ive had trouble with piles many of times , but i have a lump about the size of a 5cent piece just on the outside of my anus & the colour of it seems to be more like a blister clear colour rather then the usual red purple colour , im realy worried & it is causing lots of pain especialy when i poo , dr gave me cream, used for 4 days now & isnt helping ???

Posted by Optional on 18/07/2012 at 04:55

Very useful information. I have first degree piles, started with homeo and got immediate relief, but again started and finally found its mainly because of food habit. I start my break fast with fruits like papaya, so that the next day morning the stool become so soft, the again i take cucumber salad in the day time and night time take fig, also drink plenty of water. With this the stool became soft and another major mistake i was doing was use to give pressure unnecssarily in the anal region , which i didin't recognize initially and later i stoped giving pressure which had a drastic change in the piles problem and also if the veins project out i feel the stool is coming but its the vein so be care ful and try to complete the process soon as possible.

I once heard a joke about how do you make a piledriver. The answer was mixing vodka with prune juice. Just for a laugh, I tried making one. Within four hours, it was almost if I had received an enema. I have since read that there actually is such a drink and it was no joke after all. It works every bit as well, if not better than castor oil.

Posted by Optional on 27/02/2012 at 11:50

i had 1st stage piles described in this article and visited the GP who prescribed protoheal ointment to apply 2-3 times a day externally and internally, duphalac syrup to be had morning and night this is to soften the stools and flagyl tablets to be taken 3 times a day, this was like an antibiotic to heal the effected area. I felt much better after a week but i also plan to take care of the situation so that it does not appear again ! few guidelines one needs to follow - have a high fibre diet, drink lots of water, avoid non veg, specially chicken and eggs, avoid milk n coffee. butter milk, yoghurt is good, eat a banana every day, spinach is good. boil cumin seas in water and have this water as often as you can. soak figs overnight and have this in the morning. you need to freeze coconut oil and insert slivers of this morning and night - it gives you much relief. wash the area with warm, salt water and wipe with baby wipes. do the 50 reps of the anus clenching exercise to strengthen the anus muscles. I hope this helps

I've suffered from anal bleeding for 14 years and I have visited my doctor on numerous occassions about it only to be given cream to use. Recently my doctor retired and after 3 bad weeks of bleeding I went to see my new doctor who examined me and gave me a referal to hospital. As a result I had the banding procedure done on 02 Dec 2011. I was told that I had 3 haemorrhoid masses all of which were banded. I would not hesitate to go again, I found the procedure to be straight forward, slightly uncomfortable but dealt with in a dignified manor, I didn't feel embarrassed at all. Afterwards it was painful for the rest of the day, pain score 6/10 which wasn't too bad, when I took paracetamol it dropped to 4/10. The next morning when I woke up there was no pain at all. I was a bit worried about going to the loo but everything was ok, I've been every day since the operation and have not had any problems. I advise anyone reading this to go and see their doctor, the doctors do this examination every day and the team at the hospital where I went see 40 patients a day (3 rooms in operation) so there is nothing to worry about. Put your health first, don't suffer in silence, there are lots of people out there with the same problem, go and see about it and get it sorted, you'll feel so much better.

I think I have piles. Its a little thing right outside my anus and itches so bad all the time. I have noticed it get a little bigger over the past few months. I guess because it got pushed out more for whatever reason. When I go poop I always feel like there's more that I cant push out. It's never been uncomfortable, just really itchy. Does this sound like piles to you?

Hey there, I had the problem for 2 years and yes i was embarrassed at first but now i wish i had done something when i knew about it. my piles start to get hard to turn it bk. Well i have two questions. 1. If the piles very hard to be turned back should i still try to force it? 2. Can i have H Ruber banding while am in this position. Thank you. Recommendation: If you hate fruits and vegetables like me and don't want to waste time try the ready fruit packs in stores like sunsberry, it made things easier to me i would just go to uni with fresh cold fruit, and it made my BM so easy that i don't feel much of a pain.

Posted by Philip on 21/10/2011 at 09:07

Lilly I know you said you don't want to but you should go to your doctors and get help. You can ask your surgery to see a female doctor doctor if that makes you more comfortable they will understand. Your mum is misinformed so are most people about piles some people just get them from a early age, but 40% of people will develop them in there middle age 30 to 40s. I also got them when I was young and dreaded going to the doctors, I was 16 so I know how you feel. Trust me there are lots of option that can be taken to help with piles, and only a doctor can really give you the correct options for the type of piles you are experiencing.

Posted by simpson on 19/10/2011 at 09:49

@lilly, hi lilly you should try making an appointment with you`re doctors surgery and ask about seeing a female doctor/nurse.if that is not an option why not go to the local hospital and ask for help/advice there.you should not suffer in silence and need to get this sorted.Talk to a family member or close friend for support,hope this helps.

Posted by lilly on 18/10/2011 at 12:52

Hi, I feel so stupid with this because I'm only a 17 year old girl and my mum said only pregnant and old people get it. I don't want to go to my doctor because i am so so embarrassed plus he's a man I know he is a professional but still so ashamed. All my life I've gone to the toilet every three or so days and strained a bit and I thought it was normal then I started to bleed, now I have them I bleed constantly I've had them for a month and I've changed my diet completely and I can go to the toilet easier now without pushing hard but I still bleed a lot and still have piles. I don't know what to do I really need help. Anyone?

Hi thanks for all the information your site has helped me a lot. I have also found a very useful remedy called Unique hemorrhoid oil. The company I got it from is called Unique Natural Products and I have to say it is fantastic as it gets rid of my itch and I have started to see shrinkage aswell. I have had piles for over 22 years and this is by far the best remedy I hve bought. Lisa the lady who runs Unique is great and has really helped me and I hope she will always keep selling it as it is my little miracle oil. Thanks again Lisa and I hope others start to use it as it is simple the best. Thanks JK xx

I have had piles for years. I had the occasional flare-up and it usually went away after a few days. But a couple years ago, I started feeling itchy all the time, even waking me up in the middle of the night. Needless to say, life was miserable. AFter researching this problem, I gave up spicy food, gave up meat, followed all the recommended dos and don'ts with regard to food. I tried home remedies, prescription creams ... nothing helped. My doctor told me this is something I had to learn to live with for the rest of my life, or I could undergo surgery. Last November I saw a specialist to discuss whether I needed surgery. She told me to try "metamucil", a fibre supplement. I didn't believe it would do anything for me since I was eating a lot of fibres already. I never had constipation, and I was quite sure I was eating right and exercising right. But she said, "Try it for two weeks anyway. You've got nothing to lose." So I did, not having any expectation. But two days into taking "metamucil", my itching stopped, and it has not come back in the past 8 months. My embarrassing problem is gone, and I can even enjoy spicy food occasionally now. When I was researching my problem, I came across this page, and I promised myself that if I ever found anything helpful, I would share my story here. So here I am. Hopefully my experience can help some of you.

Posted by Optional on 24/07/2011 at 03:02

It's VERY unusual for me (very VERY), but I've had problems with "constipation" lately, and also piles. They aren't PAINFUL, but they certainly do itch, and that I have an odd "popping" feeling. I'm sure if I wasn't constipated (what an odd feeling, WANTING to go, but not being able to), the piles would go away...

Posted by olderlady on 06/07/2011 at 07:10

Forgot to say in last posting - the biggest help to me recently has been to go to a Registered Acupuncturist who has treated me holistically. In other words, he has treated the background stress leading to piles - has worked very well in several areas of my life.

Posted by olderlady on 06/07/2011 at 07:07

Had an injection last year that stopped the bleeding after several years of banding etc; also followed advice from this site about exercises for anus and pelvic floor several times a day. Have started to poo standing up - works fine now I'm used to it! Also using the Hemorroid oil from Unique (mentioned below) and making sure to eat lots of fruit to keep stools soft, drink lots of water etc. All this has meant no bleeding has returned. Hope this helps someone else.

Posted by Sandy on 15/06/2011 at 07:50

My problem is a bit different. I am having piles for last 8 years. Everytime I pass stool a small amount of skin comes out and I have to manually press it backwards. Once I do this everything gets ok until I pass stool again. There is sometimes a small discomfort in that area but it does not affect any of my daily activity. I only had major problem once for 10 days when I could not press it back and it was out all the time and caused a lot of pains. That time I took sitz bath 2 times a day and it was cured. Has anyone else having the same problem? Will I have to push it backwards for the rest of my life everytime I go to toilet? Is there any possible non surgical cure of it?

Posted by Optional on 11/06/2011 at 06:34

Posted by Optional on 08/06/2011 at 05:58

Had my three internal piles banded yesterday. Actual procedure was at around 4.30pm - was kept awake during the night with pain. Let's get this straight - the pain isn't excruciating - a couple of paracetamol eased it, but not enough to get a good night's sleep. Feels like a mild ache but keeps you hopping from one side to another if you see what I mean! I suspect it would have been easier had the procedure been performed earlier in the day. Still, today I feel a lot better, very little pain - still a little 'loose' from the laxatives prescribed by the hospital for the sigmoidoscopy that was performed before the banding but that should improve. For those who are still suffering - remember that the doctors don't find it embarrassing at all - they deal with it on a daily basis, so don't let that be a reason NOT to get something done about it!

I haven't come across my complaint in your artical. I have little tares (fishers) around my anal gland which gives me pain when I pass poo. When I wipe myself the tissue is full of blood.I have talked to a consultant who says that an absess in my bottom which is to be operateted on is nothing to do with these fishers around my anal gland. Do you agree with the consultant or would the fishers be part of the absess.

I don't know if i have piles problem. But going to the loo today it felt like some strain was going on, afterwords I felt going again but this time just a small amount of clear mucus mixed with some bright blood come out. I had experienced mucus before but never blood. Off course I always think to the worst case scenario first. Should I be worried or is it pretty commune?

Posted by Optional on 08/05/2011 at 12:58

I wrote the almost success story and have been reading through some of the previous comments posted, it appears to me there is a common factor amongst most people who use this site. . . You all seem 2 sit around praying and hoping for someone to give you a miracle cure!! From the information I've found ALL sources claim piles could be a result of weakening in the stomach walls. While your all prepared to adjust your diet to make going to the toilet and life in general easier, or accepting that this WILL be a problem for life, not 1 of you seem to think about resolving the possible main issue and strengthening muscle walls with exercises. Maybe its time to make a lifestyle change, to rid yourself off the problematic factors in your life that leave you feeling bloated, stressed, tired, rundown, because all these things have been listed as possible factors and causes. I know it probably sounds hard but only you can get past that 1st hurdle, only you will benefit from it, I refused to sit round feeling sorry for myself and got off my backside and done something about it and now I barely have any problems or symptoms.

Hi friend's.. i think this is the best page for pile information/discussion i have visited from last 2-3days. I am too suffering from piles. when I take pain killer and use ointment, I feel better. I have reduced my diet to curd - rice from last 3-4 days. I have visited a surgeon from advice of my doctor, he told me that i have to undergo a surgery. Also he prescribed some pain killer, laxative and a blood clogging tablets. Is the piles don't get cured without surgery? As I am going to get married on 29th May and my doctor told me that it will take 3-4 weeks for recovery if i get operated. So frnd's guide me whether I go for surgery or wait for some more days please

Posted by Optional on 24/04/2011 at 09:50

An almost success story. . . Having experienced mild symptoms of piles in the past, I wasn't too surprised when a heavy weekend on the beer brought then down again, only this time it turned serious. I started to leak a clear, fishy smelling, non mucus like substance that just wouldn't stop day and night and was heavy enough to soak through both underpants and over pants. This left me with severe nappy rash and i developed 3rd stage piles. Being too embarrassed to see my g.p I started researching on the net. I found stomach/abdominal exercises would help firm up the muscle walls and a healthy diet soften up stools. I should probably explain that from a young age I've been a gym/salad dodgerand only ever ate white bread which made up most of my diet. I'm a heavy smoker, heavy drinker and took prolific amounts of drugs (socially, I'm not addicted to anything) of my adult life. I started doing the abdominal exercises and took to jogging which eased the symptoms but never cured them completely so I changed my diet. This also eased symptoms. . . But they still wouldn't go away! 3 months on I have cut the drugs out completely and take long periods off the beer, no longer is my under carriage wet or sore, no bleeding and only mild itching but bearable, I go to the toilet with so much ease now. Some symptoms still persist such as the ' phantom stool' and occasionaly there is a small amount of mucus, but not even enough to stain my pants. Here is my diet and current exercise routine for you, the exercise gets tougher and more vigorous as the weeks go by. I've listed my diet and exercises below but I don't want to get sued so am gonna say now I accept no responsibility for your actions, consult a doctor before doing either of these yourself: I now do 12 sets of 12 reps of various abdominal crunches and sit-ups daily (started by just doing as many sets of 10 reps of normal crunches as I could every other day and built up, remember when first starting you must leave time to rest the muscle between sesions, resting time decreases as you get used to it, google these there's looooaaads of sites and info out ther). I do other exercises now as well but you gotta start somewhere. I also jog 2-3 miles every other day, this started as running/fast walking 1 mile every 2-3 days. My diet: Breakfast: -1 protein shake ( I find these are excellent for trapped wind and help repair muscles after training) -bowl of bran flakes 10 o' clock a.m -tin of plain tuna ( no mayo, salad cream, sauces etc just plain tuna) Dinner -small plate of boiled pasta with small amount of sauce - 3 pieces of fresh fruit - protein shake 2 o'clock - bowl of home made lentil or vegetable soup - 2 pieces of fruit Tea time - boiled chicken and potatoes/rice/pasta (chicken can be substituted for fish and other things but I am really a fussy eater and sick to what I like) -protein shake. Don't eat after 6pm. Remember, this is my diet, These are the foods I like and what works for me. I'm not recommending you do this!! That is up to you, google it or go see a doctor. I also use vitamin supplements as well. I'm not completely healed but it does feel like I'm on the mend, and I'm developing a wicked body, in particular a beauty 'six pack' which I've never had before! I really hope some people can get some benefit from this. Good luck and fingers crossed for all of you x

I have suffering from external piles. I have seen worst day in my life. I had cold. My doctor prescribed MOX 500 and that was it. I went back to home from office. Had tea and went to loo. By then my tummy inflated like a balloon. Trust me friends I could not bear the plight. I was bleeding bad very bad. It was something like, you fill water in a plastic bag and then puncture it with a needle. The blood was flowing just like that and by drops as well. I GAVE UP THE HOPE OF COMING OUT OF LOO ALIVE! I bleeded for approx 2 minutes, I had lost my mind... Washed my anus with water pushed back the muscle( was hard to do...painful) after repeated effort the muscle went in though the bleeding did not stop!. It was over 30 minutes in loo. I came out praying.Bleeding had stopped. I was relieved thinking I was relieved and trouble was over. I had dinner and went to bed. The next morning to my surprise I found blood stains in my pajamas and on the bedsheet!!! That was so embarassing. I found very hard to convince my family and I am still hiding it from my family memebers. As of now I am taking Ayurvedic tablets (pilex from Himalaya drug house) and thank-od ointment. The bleeding has almost stopped. as I am continuing this medication. From the above article it is evident that there is no permanent relief from this... Precautions: 1. Consume more and more water. 2. Stop coffee. 3. Lessen the consumption of all types of meat also eggs. 4. Swallow fenugreek seeds with honey before bed. 5. Go to loo and do not force the stool to come out. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE A FEELING OF DISSATISFACTION OF COMPLETE STOOL EVACUATION but this is just a false feeling. try to over come from this. 6. Do not apply soap to you rectal area while bathing. This may lead to extreme burning sensation. That's it friends. I feel sad but I don't want operation. I pray almighty - heal me and forgive my sins and protect others from this problem too...

Posted by Optional on 26/03/2011 at 05:52

Very Good Response. My Dr. gave me Nirtoglycerin USP 2% and this helps almost immediately. Once had a bad event wherein it effected the genitalae and just above pubic bone, internally, applied a slight amount and within 5 minutes, at least, was relieved. Very slight amount rubbed on anus.

Thank you for this article... I know what to do now, at least for a week, before i go and see a doctor... But phychologically at least, and practically, you have helped me a lot. I have done all the wrong things. Read encyclopedias during toilet time, strain a lot during poo time, drink 0 glasses of water most days, and keeping a high fat nutrition (atkins) with absence of pasta, fruits, and vegetables... Thank you once more... I will try and fight it myself, and if it persists i will go to the doctor...

This is a good job done here but what if with all this the pile is not cure

Posted by Ambassador Londo Mollari on 18/03/2011 at 11:44

This is my recent experience, which I hope helps. I had 2 piles banded 6 years ago, which was a painful experience because of, I think the way the inner lining is held in order to put the bands on (?)However the worst part was that I went to the hospital for the procedure with a good breakfast and lots of coffee inside me. Had the procedure 2 hrs after breakfast and went home. On the way I felt my bladder bursting to wee, got home but found I just couldn't go. So I was in agony wanting to go and from the banding procedure which somebody described as a dull tooth ache type pain of which I agree.I just couldn't keep still because of this awful pain. Finally took some over the counter medicine for cystitis. That calmed things down and by the end of the day I could Pee at last. My bowl movements were OK the next day and I was off work for a total of 4 days. Bruised bladder ? Well,Just had to have 3 piles banded again. Its has to be lack of fiber in the diet( which I'm going to address)and straining on the loo as they came back. I also put it down to being a ceoliac as the problem of piles came shortly after being diagnosed and cutting out gluten. So based on the previous experience I went to have it done with an empty bowel, moved the night before and bladder. Still forgot how painful that procedure was , Ouch !! Got worse on the way home.I needed to wee! First time I drove myself !Not sure how I managed to get home ! This time my wife took me . At home the pain was becoming unbearable. I took some 'Oramorph' which my wife uses for her condition, through the day .That helped and I spent the day in bed. My bladder was not too bad and I could wee , phew.Next day I wasn't eating much as a massive headache came on. Should of drank more in hindsight. Day three still felt bad but I could sit for a while and I was waiting for the first bowel movement, but nothing . I tried to push gently to start things off but just got the pain back for a while. I think now that I was constipated and the reason was the oramorph I had taken( look it up). So that was a bad move. Decided to take some 'movicol to help soften things up. Day 4 the same although I did try to eat. Day five- I stayed off coffee and drank water. Day six fed up of water wanted something with more taste to drink. Bought some blackcurrant 'Vimto'. Never had it before. Made the classic ceoliac mistake of not reading the ingredients label. Its only blackcurrant I thought ! No after drinking a diluted with water pint of the stuff I was very sick 2 hours later!! Can it get any worse I thought. But the reaction affected my lower bowel and after a few more hours I had a uncontrollable slightly painful bowel movement. I spoke to my Dr who signed me off for the rest of the weak to recover and get back my strength. I'm eating OK now with increased fiber intake but still my movements take time and although soft they can feel and act slightly constipated. Resulting in an a uncontrollable explosive action. So to sum up. Speak to your Dr about pain relief before you go to have the banding done. Eat and drink well before the day. Empty your bladder before you go and have a light breakfast. Afterwards try to eat normally and hopefully a movement will happen for you at your normal time. Be prepared for at least a week off to recover. Increase your fiber intake afterwards. Hope this helps someone.

This is really helpful I have had piles for almost 2 years now since having my son and after trying different cream it has become unbearable with the irritation but recently my doctor told me there's no cure they will never go away without surgery and I don't qualify for that so I was distraught but refused to give in and looked up cures and found this article now I am going to go back to my Doctor and demand something like banding be done. Thank-you! X

What a great platform to learn from. I suffer frompiles since I was in high school. I have always been very active and healthy but bleeding now and then made it really worse. Those days one could nto even speak abou ti tdue to embarrassment! I believed in drinking a lot of water as that would wash many of my troubles away and ensured I ate greens with high fiblre during this period. But after my childbirth things turned nast. Eventually I had the courage to discuss with my doctor when my son turned 13! I was advised most of the above personla remedies which I am still following. I chose to give up eating all sorts of meats and processed cheese or starchy foods. My meals by and large are salads, fruits and fibre rich produce. But it does not go away....I've learned to deal with it...there are days I could really not want to rmember especially after having eaten out or at a party! I do not want to have a surgery therefore am doing all my best to avoid it.

I am a 17 year old girl and i think i have 3rd degree piles cos i have bleeding every time i go to the toilet and there is a pink lump sticking out and i can see it when i look in the mirror .. It is very sore and uncomfortable but i feel embarrased about going to the doctor .. I am glad it is piles though because i was very worried that it might have been a cancerous lump .. Thank u for the info .. Do u think i should go to GP or jus leave it for a while? I have had it for about four months already

Posted by Vernon on 07/03/2011 at 09:27

I still have 3rd degree piles, its been nearly 13months, ive tried everything, and nothing works, i think surgery is my next option.......

Posted by Optional on 06/03/2011 at 10:53

Thank you. i didn't know about this at all. i have the most of above symptoms and i thought its a rash or something temporary thing. and i will see a doctor asap.Thanks again

This is the 2nd time i have piles.. first time i got them was when i was pregnant with my now 6 year old son. I had a massive one and the day before i had my son i had a dr out to have a look at it. He tried to push it back in but couldnt so told me to got to A&E. they gave me gas and air and becasue of that it started the actual birth off. I was so glad, but the symptoms was still there. I had several injections what never helped during the following years and in the end i had an op. Now 6 years on i had a knee op and the tablets i took for the pain made me contripate again.. so here i am.. with the same piles and my god do they itch! Driving me mad!!! The first op i had on them..they left some skin haning down and its them what now are full of blood and are causing such irritation! Dont understand y thy neva took them off in 1st place like discribed above.. Anyway.. ill make sure thy sort it out this time! so good luck to u all whos commented b4!!!

i am 34 weeks pregnant since yesterday have a very hard uncomfortable pile that wont return in, my doctor wont give me any thing for them till after pregnancy why is this?

Posted by Gray on 22/02/2011 at 12:39

I noticed some bleeding last month but thought nothing of it, it wasn't till the next month it got worse and I new I had to tell someone. I plucked up the currage and told my gf then spoke to my parents. I was In to see my GP the next day. He had to insert a few fingers to check what the problem was. Only thing that may of coursed this was some heavy gym work outs if started with a trainer. Today I had the band put on. Iv never been to hospital before, I'm healthy and eat plenty but looks like I have over strained myself so iv had to pack the gym in. Very uncomfortable with this bands on but the pile should drop off in the next few days and hopefully I can get back to normal! I wish I saw my GP sooner but didnt have the guts. See your GP soon as you notice bleeding to avoid getting the band put on or any other treatment. Very useful site.

Does pile cause stomach pain?

Posted by Optional on 20/02/2011 at 10:34

Anyone that is worried they have piles GO SEE YOUR GP. I'm only 23years old but I plucked up the courage to see my GP after having heavy bleeding everytime I went to the toilet. The doctor was very understanding and explained everything to me. I did have to have an internal examination whereby he had to insert a few digits to feel the inside of my rectum and then I had that small scope inserted and the doctor confirmed it was piles. He has put me on a weeks worth of supositories containing anti inflammatory medication (which you insert into the rectum twice a day) and a months supply of laxatives (which dissolves in water and drink once a day). It's only been four days but I've had no bleeding! Don't put it off see someone about it xx

Posted by Pile Sufferer on 19/02/2011 at 06:48

Thank God I looked into this! I thought constipation was causing rock hard poo and tearing my rectum. I freaked at the thought of cuts getting poisoned by faeces. Before long I had convinced myself it was very serious. When I actually researched it I realised I was blowing it up in my mind. Now I've rejoined the human race and have cream, pain killers and a vow to eat/drink better!

Posted by Optional on 19/02/2011 at 06:09

info here useful. To get rid of pains, use salty warm water to wash gently n avoid usin tissue in d lavatory. Usin a towel by soakin into warm salty water and presin on ur anus repeatedly is another option. As a matter of opinion, I believe these treatments are short term and needed to be a kind of routine thing. Mustafa.

I developed piles back in 2007. I visited hospital and was done banding. Nurse did not do it right and it was total discomfort due to ring banding. I removed it in despair, with that my one pile swollen badly and filled with blood. I went to another doctor and he prescribed augmenten 1 g BD , Ispaghol and asked to use ice packs to ease the sensation. I took augmentan few days and it worked reall well, my swelled piles shrinked. i have developed them again few days back and i was severally bleeding like hell. I went to Hakeem and he prescribed medicines and a cream to apply. Now I am not bleeding by the Grace of Almighty Allah. I am equally dong precaution in eating like eating light food and using a lot of fluids.

I don't have aches but when I go to the toilet its painful and feels scratchy as though its cutting? I havnt been particularly constipated either??

Posted by Nicki on 13/02/2011 at 10:55

I was told 2 months ago after a bad experience in the toilet, I was constipated and really strained, after which I was in agony. I have tried pile creams but the burning was too much to take. I have recently bought a herbal remedy which actually seems to be helping, but when I have been to the loo, I am really aching all around the area, including at the front, can anybody tell me if this is something they've experienced? I'm a bit fed up with taking painkillers, but this ache is horribly painful?

Posted by Optional on 03/02/2011 at 08:28

Hey guys have piles at the moment really uncomfortable, went to the pharmacy. Best thing to do is to get a laxative that softens your stool(poo) and cream is available to bring down swelling and with it being itchy which I have not had thank god. The cream I have is called anusol. Also the laxative I'm on goes up your anus, so a lot of water is needed to drink, to enable this to work. As it takes the water from your body to soften your poo. Hope this helps me as well as anyone who try's it!!!!

Posted by Tiffany on 18/01/2011 at 02:39

My name is Tiffany and I have been having this problem for a few months now. When I was pregnant and my son was over due I had to have induce labour, so I was pushing too much so now I got piles. I had two before and one went away but now I got one that kills me to even go to the toilet. I hate having to go to the toilet. I have lossd a lot of weight because of this because I fear to eat because of the pain of passing it out. I'm now trying to eat more fibres and drink more water and hopefully it will help. I just pray and wish the pain will stop because it is really controlling my life.

Posted by Maureen on 16/01/2011 at 02:41

I had pile for years and since i change my diet with a lot of fibres i am fine along with plenty of water its amazing and it went right in thanks to god because it was so uncomfortable

I have suffered with anal bleeding for as long as i can remember,my gp got me an outpatients appoinment at my local hospital.there i was told its probably piles.they said they would band them there and then and it would probably sort the problem,to be honest i was not expecting to have anything done but i went ahead with it seeing as i was there.the proceedure was quick,a little uncomfortable but thats to be expected and i was on my feet within 10 minutes.to be honest i was just glad to know it was nothing more sinister,but the banding is not a proceedure to be worried about.

Ok heres the deal, I have been lifting weights for 2 years and have had no problems. But last week i had a very uncomfortable pain around my anus and it felt like a little lump. I had no problems going to the bathroom and there was no blood in my stool or when i wiped. The discomfort would only come when i tense my anus. It went away after 5 days or so and 2 weeks later its back again but in a different part of the anus but its the same feeling and same discomfort and still no bleeding or problems going to the bathroom. I dont know if i should worry about this or should i just wait and let it go on its own.

I have been suffering from third degree piles for the past year. I got them during pregnancy and they became larger after giving birth. They never hurt or itched until the past month. I seen the doctor and he told me to wait and see if they go away.Im not sure how long i should wait and the pain has now become so severe i cannot go for walks, sit down, have trouble using the washroom and cannot even sleep.I have been eating a ton of fruits and veg and drink up to 10 bottles of water per day and nothing seems to help. I take sitz baths,use ice and creams and my pain is never relieved. I am currently breastfeeding and struggle every time i need to sit to feed my child. For the other 23 year old all piles do not bleed as my didnt bled or hurt for about 10 months. Be careful as that can change quickly.

ive had piles for years since my first child who now 7 i now have 3 piles and am pregnant with my third child which is due in 2 weeks my pile has got so bad its the size of a golf ball and very sore and purple i went to the doctor who said it was a tumor that could be removed down a and e he said they slice it to relieve the blood but im not sure wheather to get it done now and if the hospital would use anticeptic on me as im pregnant im dreading it has anyone had a operation like that and does theres sound simular to mine?

Posted by Tom on 02/12/2010 at 02:38

I hope this helps, it did for me: 1. No spicy foods (e.g. curries), minimise gassy foods (e.g. grapes & beans), limit alcohol. 2. Chew food lots before swallowing. 3. Don't strain on the toilet. 4. Use water not tissue paper to clean your butt (Middle East style). 5. Once a day put your legs up & clench your anal area 30-50 times. As background I had piles on and off for 10 years, & tried creams & banding but with limited effect. The above advice I got from a Russian doctor in Iraq (yes, really!) & it seems to have sorted things out. Point 5 sounds crazy I know..

I am a 23 year old female. I'd like to think I have piles but it's never bled and is never painful. I've had it for at least ten years. I've never been to see a dr because, 1its not painful and 2 I'm way to embarrassed. They sound alot like stage 3 piles as they don't go back in on their own. However all the internet sites I visit Tell me all piles bleed. Does anyone have a similar case? I'd love to be reassured that it could be piles and not something as serious as cancer. Thx

Hi, i've had Third-degree piles for 17yrs now since my eldest son was born. The pain has gone but somtimes it plays up, and gets so annoying with it being there, been to my doctor, she said "just eat heaps oy fruit and vegs it should go away", but i think 17 years is enough. have to go back to see the doctor and ask about banding it, is that still good after all this time of having it?

Posted by Francis on 01/12/2010 at 06:42

Had piles now for three months .didn't relise at first wentcto doctor with itchy anus said it was probably a fissure issue give me some mild h cream the itching eventually stopped and then u realised it was piles ..I started to get burning sensation when I had a number two.I felt the area and could feel three piles .I am using anusol from chemist,warm baths,lots of fruit,and baby wipes instead of toilet tissue.problemseems to improve only to come back I think I got them through chronic diahorrea in may which I had for 4weekd as I am slim in shape and never constipated.probably will go back t doctors if not gone by home methods in thenext couple of weeks.find sine of the creams available actually make me itch more...hope this goes shortly as I agree with you all it drives you nuts.especially the itching in public ,can't beleive how many have this issue,love all the advice and sure they will go shortly ?!!!!

what is a stuck pile and what is the cure ?

Posted by Optional on 03/11/2010 at 01:22

People who are unsure, PLEASE go to see your doctor. They will have seen far worse on a daily basis. Chances are there is nothing much wrong at all, but best to be safe. PLEASE, it's so tragic when people die from things that could have been fixed with a pill if only they'd gone to the doc.

Posted by William on 03/11/2010 at 10:02

I have had problems with piles on and off for a long time........around 20 years ago I developed a set of exercises for myself at the onset of the piles which fix the problem almost within 24 hours......the exercises can be used also if the piles have become established....they may hurt at first with compression of the area..but this quickly goes away..... The exercises consist of working the sphincter area..ie pulling the anus muscle inwards.then relaxing...about fifty repetitions at a time...then tensing and relaxing each buttock muscle alternately fifty times each...I continue these exercises as many times as possible through out the day...in sets of fifty repetitions......no one knows you are doing them..you can sit at your office desk or in the car and do them.....and they have worked for me for years..without having to resort to any other treatments....smelly creams etc.... My wife says the exercises are similar to the pelvic floor exercises used by expectant mothers....... My reasoning .....rightly or wrongly was that as with muscles... if things get soft and flabby ...then some gentle exercise will tighten things up again and increase the blood circulation to the area......Hope this is of some help....

My advise for a natural remedy would be www.uniquenaturalproducts.co.uk the oil they sell is very good. It stopped my itch and the piles are shrinking very quickly. They also offer a discount if you are a returning customer or buy a few at a time aswell.

also ICE...wrapped in a clean cloth and held on the toosh.you may feel its coldness makes u want to pull it away.dont not put ice direct on onto a prolapsed pile can cause tearing..it must be in a cloth. and it sooths and brings inflammation down..dont suffer in silence. its not like you a STD. you are normal. but seek medical help if creams do not help. dont be ashamed.

Posted by Optional on 13/10/2010 at 02:31

I have also suffered piles...these are few things i have found that help relieve the discomfort and in some cases the inflammation has subsided...run a bath ,just enough to sit your toosh into it...put plenty of salt where u are likely to sit. stay there for aslong as u can..20 mins is my max. then roll towel up and sit on it so it soaked up excess water. apply creams if you have them too. dont sit on piles. if u can lay on your side.

Posted by Morgan on 12/10/2010 at 07:31

Hi, I have suffered 3 stage of piles & had myself operated, but why i am writing is because one of the most important cause in some cases is diet & the climate. i got a transfer to a very hot& humid place & used to walk a lot to office. i was having a habit of eating Banana & ate the variety available there (Nendra)& within 15 days the piles developed & was in a very bad state & hence the operation. So please look into the diet you are following & if you are intellegent enough you can exclude the item which is causing harm & as oils are being discussed. Castor oil has a very good effect on piles it will cure the problem in 10 to 15 days if applied everyday. Piles can recur after operation also i am a live example & am treating it as & when with Castor oil.

Very useful article. To the point without making people worried. Maybe inherited too as in my case (from mother). No siblings have them though. Standing up all day eg shop work or teaching doesn't help piles! Stress doesn't help either - but will try upping fruit intake ever further. M.thanks

Just wanted to leave a note to everybody who is concerned about this: See your doctor! I know you might feel embarrassed, but just take a look at how many comments there are here, and therefore how many people suffer from the same affliction. I went to the doctor about a year ago after discovering I was bleeding from my anus and got quite a fright. I'm very body conscious so thought I'd find it hard letting the doctor have a look/feel, but his professionalism made me feel as though this was totally normal. He see's my body as a mechanic see's a car. He just wants to identify the problem and help me fix it. I felt absolutely no shame or embarrassment whilst there, even though the thought of it turned me beetroot before I went into the clinic.

Posted by philip on 21/08/2010 at 01:57

had bright red bleeding when going to the toilet so went to the doctors, any bleeding when passing stool should be checked out as could be something more than piles. to make 100% sure there isn't any other problems my doctor will be having a barium enema examination done before removing my piles with banding. The exam for piles isn't at all painful and only takes a couple of mins. the banding opp should only take half an hour or so. My advice is If your bleeding when going to the toilet go to your doctors and have yourself checked out as its always better to be safe than sorry

I had suffered from pile for about 3 year. Consulted with doctors for about 1 year but no results outcome. A lot of medicine wasted. So I decided some new method by myself. I have applied the following method and my pile gone out after 2 years. This is a very slow procedure to cure the pile and applicable only for intial stage pile. 1. Eat veg. 2. Avoid to much sitting. 3. Avoid excessive latrine. Don't apply high pressure to anus during latrine. 4. Always apply a little force to keep the anus contracting and tightening position. 5. Always try to bring the lowest part of the abdoment in the upward position. 6. Apply oitment on it to kill the germ, eg. anovate, candid B etc. to relief the itching. Good luck.

well not alone! let you know how i get on.

Posted by Toomuchfreetime on 28/07/2010 at 12:55

Not quite sure which I have. I had them for the first time about 3 years ago. Its always been just one big lump on the outside. I went to my Dr to find out about it because having never had it before I was concerned. He had a quick look and poked at it for a couple of seconds and then told me it was piles. I didnt need any surgery for it, all he did was give me a cream (called Anacel i think) but I only used it twice and they went. 2 years later I got another one. Same as the first. Not extremely painful but very uncomfortable. On this occasion I did not visit my doctor or take any cream. Infact, I did nothing. Within a week or so it went away on its own. I found yesterday that I had another. (they must love me cause they keep coming back). So I did a little research on them and found this site on google (very handy by the way). At the moment I have a slight bit of pain. Its uncomfortable but barely noticable. When I walk, the pile rubs a little, but it only really hurts when I bend over. It doesnt sound like much, but a warm soapy bath does ease the pain. It doesnt cost anything and im sure everyone has access to hot water and a bathtub. If in cases like mine where it is just a lump on the outside, Avoid sitting on it. If you have to sit, try folding a sweater and placing it at the opposite side of the cheek the pile inhabits and it should take off a little pressure, thus easing discomfort and pain a little. If you are embarrassed to go see a doctor or to visit a pharmacy for treatments (in the case I have at the moment) Dont worry about it. It will be uncomfortable but it will go away on its own after a week or two. If it lasts longer then 3-4 weeks, I advise sucking it up and going to see a doctor, as it may be a different type of pile. As stated in the information given by this website, Advoid straining after going number 2, even if it feels like there is more to come. This is also true if you feel the need to go again after only an hour or two of having been last. Try to go number 2 every 5 hours or so to be sure you have completely emptied your bowels. {Rate this info 1 - 10 in following posts. 1 being useless and 10 being useful}

Posted by Em on 26/07/2010 at 11:22

Hi, A week ago today I had an operation to remove two prolaspe piles. I had been suffering on and off for the two years, with the last eight months being pretty much continuious. At one point it was that bad I had to phone in sick for work. After i realised i was spending a fortune at the chemist (they did help a little, but I was using suppositries like breath mints, sometimes two or three at a time) I always thought I was regular going to the toilet pretty much everyday, never really strained etc or anything. I even took lactulose it would help. Sometimes i would notice small amounts off bleeding. I finally went back to my doctors as i realised i couldnt carry on like this as it was ridicolus and they forwarded me onto a specialist. Well she was great!! she did a very quick exam and could see that i had two prolasped. The following week i was at the hospital. The hospital staff were great (i was the youngest one on the ward) I was out of it for 15 minutes under general anaesthetic. I was a bit dosey for an hour but ok, had a little dull pain as i was coming around which i told the nurse and she gave me some pain killers, within half an hour it did the job. A couple of hours later (the same day) I was allowed to go home. My doctor did explain to me before the operation that I was going to be in pain but I didnt care as I know I couldn't cope any longer and thought this would but a end to it, which she stated it would. When I saw the doctor after my operation she told me 'they were bloody awful and needed doing' I couldn't thank her enough. When I left the hospital I left with several pain killers, lactulose, fiber gel and antibiotics. It was explained to me that I would still get a small amount of bleeding when i went to the loo, hot baths would help with the pain and to make sure I continued to take the pain killers every few hours as instructed. (forgot to mention i was told I need two weeks off work to recover) When I got home I felt ok as i was taking my pain killers however nothing prepared me for the pain of going to the toilet for a number two the following morning. If im being completely honest I have never felt pain like it. All i can say is make sure you have taken your pain killers before you need to go and have someone running a hot bath and then get straight in it and stay in it for aslong as you wont. Dont get me wrong it wont take your pain away but it will help. that pain will pass within 30 mins or so. No its a week on and im still walking slowly but better and finally feeling normal again but it still hurts like hell when i go, but im recovering in shorter periods of times (still taking the odd pain killer here and there afterwards) This time next week i'll be back to normal im sure of it and dont regret for one minute having this done as i couldnt continue as i was. Hope this helps

Posted by Optional on 26/07/2010 at 03:45

i have had piles on and off for about 15 years, almost half my life and the only thing i have found to help apart from diet change is rectinol cream, if it does not help there may be a more severe problem at hand.

hi... I was looking around online and found a couple of sites including this one but i've been reading about a holistic method. I just finished reading your article and i can now see how piles occur. After reading all the various methods above to treating piles I'm just wondering if you've come across something called the H treament? it seems to be bandied around the net alot. I suffer chronic piles and i believe it could be hereditary also as many of may family have it also. I stopped at a particular blogger who found relief from this treatment at www.treatpiles.org Its hard to know how genuine these kind of suggestions are but I'm getting to the point where I might be looking at surgery. Thing is i have also read alot about people's negative experience with surgery. Many have said it has caused them permanent pain often caused by the scaring. I suppose this is a risk with any surgery so thats why i thought it may be worth trying this holistic method...your thought would be greatly appreciated.

Posted by Mark on 25/07/2010 at 01:05

Hi I have suffered piles for nearly 6 years. I have tried everything you can buy over the counter and guess what? Nothing has ever worked! My Dr gave me something to insert in to my anus that was supposed to cure the problem, even that did not work. In the end I went searching on google and discovered a oil sold by www.uniquenaturalproducts.co.uk (sorry if I am not allowed to recomend a product). It was amazing, at first I thought it would be just another product claiming to cure the problem but it really did. I was at one point thinking about quiting my job as I was in so much pain! I drive alot and sitting was making it worse. Not anymore I am able to do my job as normal and the piles have disappeared completely. The lady who runs Unique Natural Products was very helpful and kept in touch, I really felt that she was very interested in my case and not just after my money. Oh its only £11.95 aswell so a bargain considering what I have paid for other creams and stuff! Hope this helps Mark ;)

This morning I have discovered a small pea size lump around my anus. It's not bleeding or itchy, till now it's just an awkward feeling and I'm finding it hard to sit. I have recently started weight lifting again after a 1 year stop, could this be the instigator? Can a simple cream (Savalon antiseptic cream) relieve the lump & would I need to stop training? Hope you can answer these questions.

After suffering from itchy piles for the last ten years, and having tried all sorts of treatments unsuccessfully, I have finally got rid of them. I read that a new study had shown capsaicin (pepper extract) was very effective, but the only product i could find with it in was something called Be Active Balm, which also contains aloe vera. I rubbed a small amount on, and although it felt like my anus was on fire for 20 minutes, after that the itching disappeared. I woke up, showered, toileted the next morning with no itching or bleeding. i re-applied and it the burning sensation was there again, though milder than day one. By day 3 the piles had disappeared as if they had never been there. It is truly a miracle. This stuff cost £7 and i've used the tiniest amount and appear to be absolutely cured. That was two weeks ago. I still apply a small amount every day, but cannot believe such a cheap and available cure has not received any publicity. I urge you to try it.

Posted by PG on 28/06/2010 at 01:13

A very informative page. Very interesting. I now realise that I'm a 'strainer', and have been for as long as I can remember. But I've only had piles a few times in the last 20 years. And they always go away by themselves. I guess I'm luck in that respect. I've been a vegetarian for nearly 30 years, and I wonder if that helps. Hmm, yes it probably does.

Posted by Sue on 18/06/2010 at 03:17

I had surgery 8 days ago after suffering with piles for years on & off,starting with the birth of my first of 3 children. I didnt really suffer pain with them but the itching was driving me mad! My consultant told me i had 3rd degree piles & duly operated within 2 weeks. I have never known such pain & discomfort in my life,I was in hospital for the day, I wasnt given any advice or told what to expect, a box of pain-killers & a small bottle of lactulose....that was it. This pain which is at its peak whilst emptying my bowels literally sends me into 'shock' I cant stop shaking, shivering, nausea etc. a good discription is like passing broken glass, the only advice ive obtained is on the web but the question i really need answering is when will this pain start to subside? Because I cant see any light at the end of this nightmare tunnel, Help, im desperate..

As i read this article i'm having a serious pain outside my anus, can't sit,walk even go to toilet cos the pain is too much, is it piles?

Posted by Dave on 07/06/2010 at 10:18

I have cronic issues and find all the expert talk conflictive. keep it dry? treat the itching with cream? cannot have both.

Over the past few days, lump has developed on the left side of my anal entry, making it all itchy...but I've not touched it, but clenched my teeth and made other faces of discomfort. I'm off to Turkey (Iceland cloud allowing) on Wednesday (June 9). Wondering if I could actually get an 'over the counter' cream - or even drugs to just ease the rear. Was looking forward to kebabs, spicy 'n' curried food and - but of course - Turkish baths.

Posted by Optional on 01/06/2010 at 11:05

Just been reading the comments as i currently have a bout of piles and not had them for about 7 years. The previous one turned out to be an anal fissure that caused a sequential pile so all the creams etc did not do any good. I know it is embarrassing but do go and see your doctor. I had surgery for the fissure and it was almost instantaneous relief after suffering for about 10 years. My current case is different but im sure as hell going to see the doc and im watching what i eat to ensure soft stool. I find bran flakes do me the world of good. Do not keep this to yourself a few minutes of embarrassment could save years of pain.

Dear Friends, You all have piles problem. I am also suffering with this. I do not visit this site offen and I am not a doctor. But I believe in Ayurved ( Home made medicine). I have seen that this proble can persist with those people who has hot blood (Body type is hot), uneven timing of meal, spicy food, countinue work in hot envirment. you can fight with pile by avoiding this cases. 1. simple meal ( leave oil food, spicy food, non veg (specially Egg, chicken, fish and other sea food, leave, hot vegitables like ( garlic, ginger,Bitter gaurd, brinjal,Fenugreek Leaves, etc. 2. take meal at fixed time in required quantity. 3. when u feel pain or bleeding take 100gm butter and 100gm suger crystal at early morning before brush. 4. try to drink lemon water and butter milk till evening most. 5. weekly take medicine for free stool. 6. try to avoid sittings. 7. keep walking. 8. give warm to stool area twice a day. 9. keep stool area oily. Hope u will feel better. Thanks, Bye

is it possible something bit on it for the swelling to increase . Can it be cured by histocalamine lotion

Posted by Emma on 17/05/2010 at 01:39

I've been noticing blood on the tissue once I've finished wiping and I've also noticed a small, spot like lump next to my back passage - Doesnt hurt to sit down or anything like that, but I have noticed when walking I feel as though I have something that wants to "come out" of my bottom, even though there is nothing there. Slightly concerned about the blood though, thought maybe I was just wiping too hard, and don't really want to go to the doctors for this, but I know I really should!

Posted by Smelly? on 12/05/2010 at 12:03

I've experienced the bleeding on both the tissue and the stools but fortunately never the discomfort although some constipation. But the real problem is the fairly constant wetness especially when sitting at your desk in a packed office; I'm fairly sure my colleagues are keeping a safe distance. Or is it my imagination? I'm visiting my GP tomorrow not looking forward to the finger up the bum routine but I must tackle this problem.

Hi this is sha , I have a problem of just itching near anus. I don't have the bleeding or pain while iam passing the stool. but i found a small skin layer near my anus , but its not paining its not disturbing me. can you give me proper answer for this friend.

Posted by Optional on 07/05/2010 at 07:36

This is the BEST and probably the only real description of what piles are that I have ever read-nOt that I have had a need to before the past couple of years! No-one said before that the pile was a pad and so I thought it was a hanging vein which didn't feel like what I had. Thank you,

Posted by Optional on 05/05/2010 at 04:53

I have the exact same problem, it's driving me nuts, I just tried the salty water trick... I have had this before too, and once even on both sides of anus but they have passed away. I too already THOUGHT about this BEFORE, that it might be because I'm really rushing out from the toilet and try to finish sitting on pot fast, + some of the foods mentioned above I have also thought that this might be the cause (thought about this even before searching it in google :P) Just hope it's not something serious, very annoying thing :(

Posted by Relieved on 04/05/2010 at 03:48

good ol' indian isabgol and trifala has definitely relieved me of my constipation, i hope piles would die down soon enough

Posted by Dave on 02/05/2010 at 12:15

This is a joyless experience, the burning can be often intense, and I would not wish this on anybody. Prep H cools things down, but having a bowel movement is one of my least favorite daily activities. Call me crazy, but expelling gas almost acts like a "massage". This page has been very helpful. My heart goes out to all of us in this unasked for fraternity.

Hey Guys who are suffering from piles, can go for laxatives and have food rich in dietary fibers. The best laxative for 1st n 2nd degree pile is "isabgol", and Dont take stress coz it is one of the major reason for Piles....

Posted by Optional on 13/03/2010 at 07:13

I get piles a lot as I suffer with IBS and strain to pass gas as it makes me uncomfortable, now I know that's the cause I'm trying not to strain. When I do get piles there are a few things I do to make life a bit easier. After I go to the toilet I rinse my anus with cold water (using a bottle)and dab it with wet tissue until completely clean. Then, once I have dried it I cover it completely with talcum powder-not perfumed. I find this really helps with the irritation and helps it clear up. I know how horrible it is so feel all of your pain! Good Luck.

Posted by Optional on 10/03/2010 at 02:39

Just go to the damn Doctors. Seriously people! Yes it's embarassing, of course you'd rather not say to another human-being that you have a sore bottom. But come on! Five minutes of embarrassment is surely worth it if it stops the pain. I suffered with third degree piles whilst pregnant. Not pleasant. But quickly sorted with a visit to the local quack. Would you sit at home nibbling your fingernails if you had a broken toe? In fact, no. If you'd rather sit in pain than do something about it. You deserve an itchy bum!

I am 48 yrs old and have VERY painful episodes after I poop with blood and spasm that last for for couple of days and sometime longer. It comes and goes. My diet and habit has not diverse for years. I drink alcohol and smoke and had done so for 20+ years. This problem first appeared 2 1/2 years ago. Since I have been very careful with my diet and my habits. Has year of abuse cause my condition? My GI doctor says I have anal fissures and he has tried most chemical treatments. I think the only thing left is surgery

i was suffering from piles for about 5 years and tried top allopathic dr. but did't get resut , although they made me constipated after treating my piles that made my piles problem worse than b4. after going though these painful years luckly i saw a homeopathic show on health channel and after that i consult a homeo dr. and believe me my piles started to remove and now i don't have my piles problem for past 5month. THANKS TO HOMEOPATHY. I suggest pile sufferer to move towards homeopathy if they want a permanent cure of piles.

Had piles for about 20 years, tried banding,injecting etc nothing worked. Then someone told me stand up when you pass faeces don't sit down. Takes a bit of practice but after about a month my piles cleared up and haven't come back and that was six years ago.

Posted by Jason on 26/02/2010 at 07:22

Hi everyone hoping this can give you some advice here.. I have had a few cases of piles myself and yes they are very painful.. mine have been that bad that they have blead a few times and has now come to the point where i have 2 go into hospital for treatment on the 13th may 2010. I have looked into this a little and a lot of your comments are the same as i have had..... Piles can be caused by a lot of thinsg.. pregnancy is common for women, straining after you have been 2 the loo... Not being clean enough... even lifting heavy weights can cause them they are not an uncommon thing and more and more of people suffer this painful discomfort everyday.. Knowing a little bit about them myself there are 3 in total in the anus, when over worked one,two or even all three of these can come out of place causing a small lump on the outside 2 a very large painful lumpor 2.. somethimes not painful but best always 2 treat it.. Cream can work but i have found that using peseries are better.. this way you are inserting the peserie up the anal.. this then melts with the bodys own heat meaning it works on the inside of the anal.. you can use cream at the same time but do not use for longer then 2 weeks, can be messy in the underware so best 2 use at night.. Also 2 help you have a hot bath.. this will help them shrival going back up in there own time.. If you have very painful piles this is more then likely because one of them has clotted.. You must be careful not 2 wipe the anal but 2 dab it.. keeping it as clean as you can..if you wipe you could end up splitting the pile causing bleading. I have had a few cases where mine have burst and blood goes everywhere.. with that happening you have 2 be careful of infection. If you have any real concerns about it always get it checked as it could not be piles but other problems further up the anal.. These can not be cured by creams of peseries but it helps 2 get them back into place and stop the discomfort.. you will more then likely suffer from them again and again once you have had them so best 2 try and have an opporation 2 remove these... ok it means a few days in hospital and up 2 about 10 days of pain MAX but 2 never suffer from them again as long as the op goes well im sure its worth it... I will comment on here again after my opporation i hope this has helped some of you out about this good luck with everything and dont worry about them 2 much you are braver then you think you know you are by asking for help.

Just wanted to help some people on here. I discovered my piles about 2-3 months ago. The same week I went to the doctor and they referred me to another doctor and then to the hospital. I went to the hospital today and had banding. After taking pain killers the pain is not as bad but still there. The doctor told me that the pain will get better after about 48 hrs. I'm 18 and female and I went straight to the doctors. Trust me there is nothing to worry about going to the doctors. It's better than living with the problem. I can't wait for my piles to fall off. And I think the pain is worth is although currently I can't sleep due to the dull ache in my back passage. All the people on here please just go see a doctor. It's not embarrasing at all. The doctor who did my banding was a male. I am 18 and a virgin so literally no man has seen me down there but I was not embarrassed at all.

I'm slightly worried that my problem isn't piles because it is normally uncommon for people my age to contract them. Also, I think my anus is slightly dry, and it bleeds when I wipe after doing my business most of the time. Do you think there's anything else it could be? I'd rather not have to tell my parents, so I'm looking for a simple, quick fix.

I am 21, and had piles since 16. Last year, I was experiencing the 4th degree piles and it just wouldnt go back in. I've been using NeoHealer for the past year. Went to my GP, and he told me I have 3big one and I need banding. It was painful and I couldnt stand or sit for the next 48hours! And now, it's coming back again. Should I just cut it off?

Posted by Angie on 23/01/2010 at 10:01

Had my piles operated on 5 days ago,had 2 piles up my passage banded and one that was perminently down removed,only in for the day and was done qiute quick,was put under so wasnt awake to know what was happening,yes i have had pain and havnt been out but hope to be back to normal in a few days,i had the surgery done 16 years ago and believe me this is nothing compared to what is was like then,5 days in hospital and a month off work,the pain was unbelievable with morphine ijections but it was worth it just not to have them for over 15 years,my advice is if you have painfull piles like me go to your doctors and get advice as to what step to take,the pain isnt worth it.

To all sufferers if you haven't done so. Please go to your doctor. Five years ago I suffered for about 6 months with itching soreness etc. then "bit the bullet" and went to my GP. I was embarassed but all he did was have a quick look, prescribed some cream and referred me to the hospital. FIRST STEP ON THE LADDER. I went to the hospital about 3 months later, saw a doctor and was given an injection there and then! very painful but short. I think it was two weeks later another visit same again short painful injection. 3 weeks later I was free from itching,soreness and lumps around my anus, easy passing of stools, I felt so GOOD and WELL. PLEASE GO TO YOUR DOCTOR FOR ANY COMPLAINT. THEY WILL HELP

I am writing on behalf of my father who has recently undergone bowel surgery for removal of a small cancerous growth along with removal of a foot of healthy bowel - the operation was a success and no further treatment for the cancer is needed. However he had to be re-admitted and put under anasthetic for an investigative look after the bowel surgery due to intense pain and complication. The cause was found to be the result of an infected internal hemorrhoid in the anal canal. The hemorrhoid was removed there and then and he is on high painkillers, keeping the area very clean, using creams eg sudocream but is still beside himself with agony, unable to sleep due to interuptions to go to the loo/clean up afterwards etc. I am an investigative health journalist and concentrate a lot on complementary treatments but I can find nothing that gives advice apropo aftercare of hemorrhoidectomy - are there any suggestions/advice to hasten the recovery time of this condition which is having such a detrimental effect on him physically and emotionally

I had piles last year after constipation and they went away on their own after a day or two. This time I hade diarrea and got them again, they have been their since two days. Both times I have forced myself. A family member suggested Anusol suppositories, they have helped a lot and made such a massive difference. They are still their and eventually disappearing and shrinking in size.

Posted by Manikandan on 05/12/2009 at 01:19

I would suggest, stapler method of operation is the best one.. even it is more expensive... I believe its worth... no pain... no long hospital stay... now i feel more comfortable.

I have a laser removed surgery at 2001 yrs,it successful and less pain,recovery at a few days(compare to old ways cause you 3 month to recover). I recommended laser remover treatment.It less pain and bleeding.I works comfortable, during my life time.

Posted by fel;ix paul` on 18/10/2009 at 02:58

Thanks for the websitre . I gort panic. My surgeon is not interested in surgery. i had torn my retum by forcing the bowels out since i do not want to use a toilet outside my house and feel I might be infected. The surgery was done and aboout 8" was removed and it went on well and now i think i again forced myself and got burning and slit smear of blood. Now with antibiotics and some liquid make my bowels move freelyt and use a packing for the hole so that the mucse does not spoil my cloths. bye any another solution. sit in warm water with natural salt for 15 minutes a day it gives some relief.

I think i have piles. i just made my boyfriend take a good look at my anus and he said i had a red lump. I made him check the internet for a picture which resembled my bum and it has confirmed i do indeed have piles! I bleed when i poo and haven't been eating much lately, and suffer regularly from constipation and an itchy bum. I'm too embarrassed to go to the doctors which treatment is the best to use?

Posted by not again!!! on 14/10/2009 at 11:49

at least i have finally found out what this is! i have had a lump hanging out of my ass for the last year or so, felt like i hadn't got rid of everything when i've been to the loo and been woken up in the night a few times with an aching anus. i was a bit scared to go to the doctor, i even started using baby wipes when i poo because i bleed from a bit higher up inside and from the anus itself. i know it's silly to not go to the doctors about it. good luck to the rest of you!

Posted by ANON on 29/09/2009 at 07:57

I suspect that i have had stage 1/2 piles for about a year now, i'm 20 years old. It's very itchy and EXTREMELY painful when i go to the toilet, i've been on the verge of tears sometimes and there is occassionally a small amount of blood on the tissue. I have been using Anusol ointment which you can just buy at Boots or any chemist and it helps greatly in relieving the itching and after two days of use my next toilet experience is pain free. I heard that piles never go away once you have them though, unless you get the surgically removed; i'm so depressed at the amount of money i will have to spend on this sort of cream treatment if this is the case! I hate them! So painful and embarrassing! My own fault i guess though, i suspect a combination of not eating right and sitting down for 8 hours of the day at my job.

Posted by ITHCY AR53 on 25/09/2009 at 08:37

i have had piles for a while now, every now and then i get right itch, but it fels so good when i scratch it!! just been to the loo and have had more blood this time then ever before, its true what is written above, it feels like you need to go a bit more, but its actually a vessel, and mine burst. i will get some germilod cream as mentioned below and see how that goes.

Posted by PRADEEP PREMJANI on 24/09/2009 at 01:39

I GOT STAPLING OPERATION LAST WEEK ALTHOUGH IT IS LESS PAINFULL BUT I THINK I WILL GET AGAIN PILES VERY SOON IT IS NOT EFFECTIVE. GENERAL SURGERY IS ONLY EFFECTIVE IN WHICH THEY CUT PROPERLY AND REMOVE ALL CLOTS IN VEIN ALTHOUGH IT IS PAINFULL BUT WHEN SOMEONE GOING FOR OPERATION BETTER TAKE PROPER OPERATION AND CURE PERMANANT THAN RELAPES. ONCE AGAIN I AM FEELING VERY PAIN EVEN AFTER 8 DAYS AND NOT SATISFIED BY STAPLING OPERATION.THANKS PRADEEP PREMJANI, SURAT (GUJARAT) INDIA

Posted by sitting high on 18/09/2009 at 11:39

Had a very bad ONE back in 1990 and had removed via an operation as my local doctor had cut it with a blade to get rid of it. Not good. Had then on and off since. Never to embrassed to go and see a doctor as it will save you a lot of pain and suffering and it is only your own embrassment, not theirs. Suffering at moment but this is my own fault as I read way too much on the loo and not alway good at eating right food.

Posted by joanne on 13/09/2009 at 08:22

I have had a baby 7months ago and during my pregnancy i had no pain with piles or any trouble. Just days after i had my son i suffered piles. I immediatialy knew i had 3rd degree piles. I am now still suffering and have been waiting for a hospitial date for 2 months. It is so bad that i cannot go to the toliet after 4pm or i wont be able to sleep during the night. My smptoms are aching, severe bleeding and swelling. i have tried everything and the only thing i have found to help is walking a long distance to stop the pain. A fewweeks ago i had a bad stomach and had dioreaha for a few days which i found to be worse as it made the burning sensation worse. I am still waiting for surgery today!
