I used to suffer from unbelievable hemmorhoids. I considered getting surgery. If they had persisted I would have so got the surgery. To me any discomfort after the surgery would be well worth it not to have a grapefruit cactus in my butt. Sorry if that was graphic. I say go for it!

I have also heard that the recovery is awful, but no personal experience.

Is it that bad that she can’t wait until after she has the baby? Because pushing out a human generally doesn’t do good things to that area.

She should wait until after the baby if she is going to do it. It would be so awfuil to go through the recovery only to have them come back because of the labor.

I am pregnant with baby #1…no sign of hemorhoids yet, but it’s only a matter of time! After delivery I wont hesitate to remove those suckers! I hear once you give birth, everything seems easy in comparison!

Stapling isn’t bad; actual cutting is, I hear, more painful, but not ghastly. Take the pain meds. Take lots of collace (like, 1k mg. a day) and drink lots of water. Do the baths. Tell her to be kind to herself. (Also, is there any possibility of waiting until after she gives birth? What’s the thinking about doing it now?)

Oh, and don’t use a doughnut pillow. Or sit, if possible.

I had the surgery about 3 months after my Dear Daughter was born. Recovery wasn’t bad at all. She should wait until after the birth though. They could come back during delivery.

She should wait until after birth. My father had one and was in a lot of pain even with painkillers. I can’t imagine doing that w/o painkillers.

carrolltobee :  I had them when I was pregnant. They’re awful but my doctor said that a lot of people hurt so bad from the surgery they wish they had just dealt with them. It kind of freaked me out so I used the witch hazel and prep h and they completely went away..though it did take much longer
