Hemorrhoid banding is one of the most common ways that those of us who treat hemorrhoids and related disorders professionally combat the problem. The process is simplicity itself: a tiny band is applied at the base of each hemorrhoid, starving it of the bloodflow needed to survive.
But hemorrhoid banding isn’t always simple or easy to get right. As accounts like this one attest, some people experience lasting discomfort following a hemorrhoid banding procedure, and some hemorrhoid doctors fail to offfer adequate aftercare to let their patients address pressing questions quickly:
Had 3 roids banded at noon Thursday which went ok with no pain so drove home fine. Took a hot sitz bath right away to be safe and just had an increasing dull ache feeling until i went to bed 10PM then woke up at 1AM with a fire burning searing pain with sphincter clenching spasms, took another bath and 1000mg Tylenol which did not really help at all. Pure agony for the next 30 hours even after a morning BM and sitz baths.
Sadly this is not unheard of. But it is also not the norm.
