Hemorrhoid surgery is effective in most cases.

However, it's important to eat a high-fiber diet, maintain good hygiene, and avoid becoming constipated, which can cause new hemorrhoids to form.

A.
I have had these banded and stapled.

The banding was instant relief and pain free if the bands are not applied too high!
Stapling was a real pain in the ass! Excuse pun
I could not have a bowel movement for 7 days??
The pain was unreal.
I now have another procedure which is basically sewing them to the cavity walls.
Less pain apparently?!
It's a horrible condition to have and I would seriously recommend getting it done sooner rather than later!
It will get worse as time goes on:(
Address the issue ASAP !!
