My new case of piles hurts so much I desperately plan on popping the
quarter-sized external hemorrhoid with a pin but I don’t know if that
self care would make me bleed forever (would the prolapsed anorectal vein
never heal?). My grapelike hemorrhoid hurts so much I’m ready to do almost
anything, even something drastic.
However, before I pop the prolapsed bulging vein to relieve the pressure, I
ask if anyone has been successful in cutting open a hemorrhoid who can advise
me so as to reduce the chance of infection.
What happened to me is that for three weeks I’ve had this persistent cough
left over from a bronchial inflammation (which I get every couple of years)
and which I’ve found that massive doses of Robitussin DM (dextromethorphan
Unfortunately, the dextromethorphan also impacted my stool such that my
constipation was severe. Coupling the straining due to the hard stool with the
severe coughing was the onset of an acute external hemorrhoid attack of
itching and burning – my first hemorrhoid in my life!
God. Hemorrhoids are awful! I have this teaspoon sized balloon sticking out of
my a***. The itching and burning I have mostly under control with
antibacterial creams but the pain of the ballooned hemorrhoid is killing me. I
just want to pop it.
Taking a sitz bath, I can shove most (but not all) of the prolapsed hemorrhoid
back in my a*** but it just pops out again when I let up the pressure. I
almost want to shove something in there to keep that d*** balloon inside but
nothing is working for me these past three days. Honestly I don’t know how
anyone survives piles. I bought a hundred dollars worth of treatments at the
drugstore, none of which seem to be making that ballooned hemorrhoid go away
(preparation H, anusol HC cream & hydrocortizone suppositories, witch hazel
water, tucks, doughnut pillows, aleve naproxen sodium,
Anyway, my main thought all day has been to pop tha irritated ballooned
external hemorrhoid so that it will just go away! It seems so simple yet I
didn’t find that solution in the web search so I ask if anyone has been
successful with that most obvious of cures?
Please help me as I can’t stand this huge hemorrhoid!

1 Try sci.med rather than sci.med.pharmacy
2 Try going to a physician.
Sorry, I don’t know the answer to your question.

believe it or not the ER can take care of this problem!!!
what they will do is cut open the “balloon” that is hanging out…it is
mostly filled with clotted blood…so the bleeding shouldn’t be that bad..
but I would NOT attempt to do this yourself!!!
maybe going in the middle of the night when ER is less likely to be crazy
busy would not be a bad idea…why suffer all night!!

You should get to the root of the problem – your diet. You are not
eating enough fiber. It is estimated that adults need at least 35g of
fiber per day, most get in the range of 10-12g/day. Also eliminating all
junk food and especially white wheat flour products is really helpful.
High fiber foods are whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Oatmeal, bulgur, wheat bran and wheat germ are especially high in it.
Psyllium may be helpful too.

Touchee. Take Metamucil twice daily.

As I told someone a few days ago, call some general surgeons or
proctologists in your area until you find one who has the equipment to do
laser coagulation of hemorrhoids.This procedure is done in the doctor’s
office, and is virtually painless. You hear some “clicks,” but don’t feel
much at all, and go home with the hemorrhoid seemingly unchanged. Over the
next few days, however, the vein shrinks away and disappears. No pain, no
bleeding, no mess. What’s not to like?

Err… maybe. Most probably wouldn’t, and whether they do or not you’ll be
paying far more than necessary. This isn’t what ERs are for.
Heh… been to many ERs? This might be true in a small suburban or rural
hospital, but an urban ER is likely to be packed to the gills late at night.
And with this sort of complaint, you can count on *sitting* in the waiting
room for many hours, followed by a quick exam, a referral, and a large bill
your insurance company will likely deny.

He’s right, you know.

if you go to the ER just tell them you’re bleeding rectally and you’ll get
in fast, at least faster than
if you dont tell them.
