I found witch hazel really helped, just dabbed some on everytime I went to the toilet and within a couple of days felt much better. I had a big baby so pushed a lot and she got stuck so they littrely pulled her out and I tore so this helped with my stitches too. I hope your feeling better soon
Hi, I can sympathise with you. I am 7 days pp. It is so emotional draining that I cant sit down and nurse my baby girl. It has started to improve slightly today after trying to push them back in. Also I am getting another prescription from docs today so hopefully that will help more. Have you seen your doctor?
Thank you, mine were so bad and i was in lot of pain so saw emergency gp as it was out of hours and she referred me to the surgeons at the hospital - thats how bad they were and he was great and gave me some fab cream that has helped numb the whole pain and i can seem them slowly shrink - on day 5 of cream and he was confident that if i avoided constipation and took his advice that i would recover within two weeks and certainly within month. the original cream from my own GP didnt do anything for me cos i did have a severe case and noone had examined me at that point.
was bit of a shock to me to be in that state but i would say to anyone else go see your gp - yeah i was embarrassed at first but its your health and they've seen it all anyway - they only get worse if left untreated
try feeding side lying if you can - that saved me as i could not sit for the pain i was in.
just think nothing lasts forever!
In a day or so it will get easier and easier and soon you wont even notice them
i was literally crying with mine as i couldnt even do a no2 they formed a barrier, i agree defernetly worse than labour x
trying to have the warm baths but hard with newborn and toddler. cream has numbed pain and they are going but since they were so horrific to begin with i wont be convinced till they totally go - live in fear will never go. be good to hear from those who've recovered!
feeling sorry for myself, piles still here - have reduced though they were huge! to begin with. feel as if will forever have them hanging around got my 6 week check up in a week and was hoping they would be gone by now. back on the hydrocotisone cream - do i need to ask for new cream? am i stressing too much and need to be patient. little one on growth spurt again - am BF so no time to have sitz baths.
will they ever go
feeling sorry for myself any fellow suffers who had bad and i mean BAD PILES who have recovered. feel as if should be compulsory support groups for this sort of trauma!
anyone???????? am i panicking for no reason as its been three weeks, doc at hospital said should be gone in 2 but although have reduced in size still way to go. will be asking for new cream as the EMLA cream doesnt seem to be working quick enuf. am off lactulose as it made me quite ill so increasing fibre in diet. going to ask doc for something else though when i rang last week they said only lactulose was suitable for breastfeeding mothers - is that true?
