I will definitely ask, I have to write Proctosol-HC 2.5% down so I can remember the name. They shouldn't have a problem with giving it to me, so that I wont have to have surgery again. I'm on medication now for fissures, which I dont think is really helping. But will still try!
LOL that you have the home number, but I can totally understand why. These things will kill you! Thanks!View Thread
I saw witch hazel in the article and was gonna try that too. Thanks!!
The surgery not painful at all its the BM's that are. I logged onto different sites and message boards beforehand and I almost decided not to have it due to peoples responses. And am so glad I went ahead with it. The pain I had last Thursday was way worse then the pain I experienced with the surgery.The first day I totally didn't feel a THING due to still being numb and on pain meds. I was totally off pain meds by the end of the second day and stuck with the Tylenol from there-on out. It wasn't until the 5th day when I finally had a BM that I was in pain. It did hurt, Im not gonna lie, but thats inevitable. I had internal and external hemorrhoids so it burned inside and out, but I had the pain pills, sitz bath and other things to help me.View Thread
I agree with the PP's. Also look at it from your boss's point of view, she may just be looking out for your best interest (not really planning for you to have a problem) and the best interest of her business. Take care!View Thread
Thanks ShanunC.. I had what felt like a softball size of stool at he bottom of my rectum. It was so big that my entire bottom swelled up, so yes the enema definitely helped me and saved my life that night. I however am never trying to allow that to happen again, so I will not use another in the future. But this is the only reason I used that AND 2 dulcolax to get the rest out that was further in my bowels. I spent at least 5 hours in the bathroom total.. no lie.. But thanks I think I should add something like Benefiber or Miralax back into my diet, I used Miralax but stopped. Thats probably my answer, that and probably upping my Colace because 100 mg does not do anything and does not soften anything..lol I will check with the nurses line on that.. and I hate those fiber bars, they are so disgusting to me lol I've tried Kellogs and another brand I think it was Fibersomething.. I gotta get a handle on this.. this is killing me.. View Thread
