hi

sorry to hear you have this awful afflication as well. sorry short reply but nursing LO. I would highly recommend you get some witchazel to soothe the pain - girls recommended it to me and it helps soothe the pain.
Also get some cream and start treating them else they will get worse, i didnt even really know what they were and mine started out as one during labour and although they said they will give me cream for it the midwives didnt so i thought nothing of it. I also had stitches and was very sore down there and thought that was why i was in pain and heaven help me before you know it i have LOADS piles hanging around and am throwing everything i can at them and seriously praying they disappear. I wish they would warn women about these and midwives should ask new mothers about them! if i had known i would have have taken a different route and treated them earlier. ppl dont talk about them esp when they get as bad as mine have and yet so many of us have suffered with them. it really helps to hear success stories as gives me home as its really got me down

I second the comment about proctosedyl. I have the ointment prescribed to me as I had pretty bad piles right after LO was born. They sorted them out - but if my diet suffers boy do I know it - they come right back! So another couple of days with the ointment and it clears up again.

Drink loooooads of water and eat lots of fruit! I'm a year on now, and the only time I get trouble is if I eat crap for a couple of days.

I'm not sure they will ever go, but what I'm trying to say is it will get better, and you will find ways of preventing them!

This thread has made me terrified! I am so sorry for all those ladies suffering from piles! I have not had a baby yet, but I do suffer from piles (it runs in my family)- they are small internal ones and I don't use anything to treat them as I only occasionaly get pain from them. I am really scared that when I do have a baby I will push them out and they will be huge external ones!

I am sorry I don't have any help for you but, I just wanted you to know that I feel your pain (literally!).

Many thanks, this pile experience has been the worse of my life, i have never had them before. Had my six week check up and died when doc asked me to show my piles to him and student doc. I then thought whatever it takes and they have seen it all anyway - besides got no dignity left and i will do whatever i have to to get rid of them. he gave me proctosedyl and only on day 4 and think its helping shrink them - mine are SO bad thats it hard to tell sometime except on week by week basis - TMI I know but i thinks if someone else is in the same boat they wont feel alone! hoping this ointment does the trick thought got be patient and see. I am also on strict high fibre diet and doing whatever it takes. doc thought it would be 2-3 MONTHS before swelling went down which nearly finished me off but since got no choice trying to remain positive.

I will post updates in case anyone else is in similar position but am determined to get this thing beat cos its ruining my life

Hi Ladies

Sorry you're all going through this pain - it's bloody awful isn't it? I have 2 magic remedies which worked better than all the steroid creams for me. Piles cleared up within a week.

1. Witch hazel gel. Make sure bottom is clean and dry, and apply this gel straight from fridge. It can sting and itch a little first, but gives hours of relief.

2. This one is a personal life-saver but it isnt for the faint hearted so do your research before you try it. Teatree oil. Straight from the bottle, onto a clean finger and directly onto the piles. It stings like hell for a few mins but the relief afterwards was worth it for me. I also put a few drops into a bath along with lavender oil and bathed 3 or 4 times a day this way.

Good luck ladies, hope they clear up soon for you. xx
