Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you
User :   Hi, not sure if this is the same Dr. I spoke to last time, but I discussed a failure to improve from the symtoms of internal and external piles last time and the Dr. suggested minor surgery may be next step
User :  
I have some concerns and wanted to ask some more questions before I see a GI or surgeon about this
Doctor :   ya sure go ahead

User :  
I have tried adding fibre, reducing meat to almost nothing, warm baths, ice, more water, witch AAAAAAA but still experiencing pain and symptoms of external piles
User :  
not much itching or burning
User :  
but feeling a bruise pressure pain when sitting
User :  
and sometimes a grape sized lump during bowel movements
User :  
it's not going away after many weeks
Doctor :  
k
User :  
so I researched many of the procedures and all minor procedures such as banding, infrared, and electrocogaulation, aerterial ligation and even stapled hemmorectomy are for internal pils
User :  
piles
Doctor :  
k
User :   leaving only traditional hemmorectomy for external piles, but this takes 1/4 to a half year to recover from and leaves severe issues like fecal urgency behind
Doctor :  
k
User :   I don't think I could bare that kind of suffering
User :  
I am very young 25 yo
User :  
are there other options for a permanent cure that aren't so severe?
User :  
I would hope in 2009 we have more modern teqniques
Doctor :  
there is nothing like severe or minor operative procedure
Doctor :   and there is no rule that all the procedures will cause complications
Doctor :  
so better go for tht procedure which your doctor suggests
User :   The dr. that diagnosed them said it's no big deal that these shouldn't bother me at all

Doctor :   then when a surgeon is telling and even we suggested you that there is no need for surgery.. even then if you are going in another way we can't help
User :   I didn't mean to disagree with medical advice

User :  
but the thing is you can't visably see the external lump unless I have a BM
User :  
then it gets big
User :  
so he may not have seen the full extent during my exam
User :  
but I think he found internal ones as well
Doctor :  
k
User :   And he said these are no big deal that I wouldn't be bothered by them but I am in pain
Doctor :  
k
User :   I don't want to use creams that don't work for the rest of my life

Doctor :  
then you can go to other surgeon who can probably suggest surgery
Doctor :  
or you can try homeopathic medicine
User :   do you know what typical recovery time from such surgery would involve?
Doctor :  
it may take from 15 days to 3-4 months
User :  
wow, that is worse than cancer surgery
User :  
I would have to loose my job
User :  
and have embarresed social situations for the rest of my life
Doctor :  
that will not alter your daily activities
Doctor :  
only 1 or 2 days of hospital admission
User :  
hmm
User :  
does this lead to trouble holding bowels or bleeding or severe pain?
User :  
or scaring?
Doctor :  
no nothing of that sort... the bowel movements will improve within a week time
Doctor :  
y can't you go for homeopathic medicine
Doctor :  
they have best method of treatment for piles
User :   that sounds like an attractive option but most of the expensive bottles they sell online are fake and don't work

User :   Do you know of any homeopathic solutions that are effective?
User :  
I mean proven?
Doctor :  
don't go for online shopping
Doctor :  
go take an appointment and consult the doctor directly
Doctor :

User :

User :

Doctor :
