Suffering with hemorrhoids post delivery, no pain or discomfort. No improvement with medicines. Help?

Ive had 2 children now and with the first I ended up with hemmroids, with the second they never went away but got bigger. Ive tried creams, suppositories, witchhazel, ect. nothing gets rid of them. they do not go away. They do not itch, burn , or hurt, BUT THEY ARE THERE! Ive willing to try anything that will make them go away before considering surgery. please help!

Hi Ashleyawander,
Thanks for writing your query.

Surgery should be cosidered for hemorrhoids which are associated with persistent pain and bleeding.

Since you are having hemorrhoids which are symptom free, you can go for conservative measures like eating fibre rich foods, drinking lots of water, taking stool softeners if constipated.

You can also opt for minor procedures like rubber band ligation or cauterization done under medical supervision.

I hope this is helpful to you.
