NMA--did they ever go away?


I know my response here is YEARS after the original post (and the multiple replies!), but I think I'm in the same boat as the "NMA" poster, with the same symptoms I'm experiencing now...and I'm just wondering if she was right: did your piles ever actually shrink on their own after a couple of months? Or did you end up doing the banding? Or are you still living with them? If you do ever read this, I'd love it if you could respond--to help others, like me, feel like there may be hope out there! Thank you!

Hi. I had quite a bad case of them for about two weeks and used the ring cushion + ice packs + rigorous hygiene + laxative so I didn't strain for n.2. I talked to my GP and he basically said that he can't give me anything that would make a big difference until I am BF.

They went back after 2 weeks and returned again two weeks later, worse than before. After a week of that, they disappeared for good.

I am now 11 weeks PP and there is no sign of them, so hopefully they won't be making an appearance again, except if I give birth again.

If things don't get better, talk to your GP - it's nothing to be ashamed of! Good luck

I have just been waiting it out and making sure to eat lots of fruit and yogurt (for the probiotics). They are getting a bit better. But mine were never really painful, just unsightly and a bit itchy and the constipation was AWFUL. Still there a bit but getting better with time (2.5 weeks pp). My dr told me to try an over-the-counter laxative but the only time I've used those before, I had the opposite problem, diarrhea for 2 days! So I'm giving it 3 weeks and then if I can't poo normally, I'm taking the laxative. I've also been eating lots of prunes for 2 days and it seems to help a tiny bit with the constipation but it's still there. I think the constipation needs to be cured before the piles will go away. Just my opinion though!
Isn't this problem gross and embarrassing!!
