Thank you for the query.

Both Movicol and Neo Heeler help with symptoms of hemorrhoids and are not permanent solution. Moreover this medicines should not be used permanently as they can affect intestines causing immune reactions and ions deficiencies.
Sooner or later the surgery will be necessary as there is no other method for permanent relief. Moreover, if you do suffer from severe constipations, you should have colonoscopy performed to see if there is no other reason of it.
You should also increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake.

Hope this will help.
