Hi Rod, I just signed up here and saw your plea. I am wondering if you have seen a doctor yet for your condition. I know some people may be reluctant due to the nature of the condition. I was that way. But it is a very common condition. However, i worry that yours keep bleeding. Sounds like your job,coupled with the condition is very stressful. Mine only got better with a combination of measures that I took. After having the problem for months, my doctor prescribed hydrocortisone suppositories. Very simple and easy. it may be a little painful at first, but once you use a few times, it helps tremendously to heal and protect during the bowel movement. I used Ibuprofen to help with inflammation and swelling during the healing process. But since you are bleeding alot, that would have to be for your doctor to decide. Witch hazel on a soft cotton ball or cotton pad dabbed gently helps alot to soothe the pain. believe it or not, listerine dabbed in this manner is very pain relieving. It takes a little time, but I have not had problems for years once I got it under control. I wish you the best and hope you feel better soon.View Thread
