Hi! I went to the Dr, and he told me again no colonoscopy and he just said fiber and nulev for the IBS. I told him that I think I have a Hemorroid and it is REALLY PAINFUL!! and that I have had it for a week! He said just use peperation H, because surgery will be more painful. I said this is my first one and please look at it to make sure, he said that he didn't have to it probably was a hemmy. Now it has been 2 days since I have seen him and it is still there, I think I am going insane with the pain, Is that normal and how long does it take to go away!!!! Does anyone else know how to make it go away other then PEP H. I know this sounds dumb but I could really use advise. I don't even want to take a BM it hurts so bad,

Jennifer.....Yes...you can find it near the burn creams......just get the pure zinc oxcide, It's better if you can use something that doesn't have a lot of extra ingredients in it ::

Jennifer...the good news? Hemmy's are not dangerous. Bad news? They can last a long, long time. Months sometimes. Your primary care doctor can prescribe 2.5% hydrocortisone cream, which is stronger than what you get over the counter. My doctor did this for me and it's the only thing that helped mine clear up. Good luck!

Also, I take 4 metamucil pills in the am and 4 more in the PM. This helps my IBS and makes it so I don't have to strain as much. The 8 pills/day I take is what works for me. Everybody's different, so it may be more or less for you.
