couldn't read and run! i have no other advice other than to literally say what you have said on here to the doctors and hope that maybe there is some other sort of tratment that they can give you to maybe shrink or remove them. Hope it gets sorted soon, i have piles too but very small internal ones and thats bad enough! xx

How far pp are you? I had shocking piles and couldn't sit for a week. I persevered with pushing them in as much as I could during my daily herbal bath and eventually they went down and did so quickly once they started. I tried allsorts of prescription and non-prescription meds and tbh Boots own brand was the best. Your hormones exacerbate the problem so you will find improvement as the days go by. I have a toddler and it broke my heart not being able to do anything with either of them.

I have terrible piles after pushing them all out during labour. They were worse than having stitches to be honest. My hubby bought me a doughnut ring cushion off eBay so I could sit down and I used ice and suppositories to help. They're not gone bit they are much smaller 5 weeks on

Thank you for your replies, am 18 days PP but didnt discover piles until about 5 days ago after straining due to constipation and then they were huge and multiple as well as prolapsed. EMLA cream has helped loads with numbing the pain and only on day 2 of using it - main concern is the swelling and getting them to shrink so want some hope.

it is awful as feel cant enjoy my baby never mind my poor toddler. had horrendous labour with my toddler and stitches and long recovery after. this time preg was awful but easy labour and was loving the precious time with my baby before this awful piles blighted my life - just feel robbed of precious time and feel down wondering if ever be normal again - just want some hope. i know i have to be patient but right now its all doom and gloom

I've been feeling exactly the same . Feeding has also been an issue with baby she gets colicky and irritable most nights. I'm just trying to hold onto the thought that this time will pass and body will recover eventually we are lucky to have had children at the end of the day x

I know you are right but hard when you in middle of the situation as everything feels gloomy. luckily baby easier this time round which helps enormously. My first suffered terribly with colic and we had him seen by a private cranial oesteopath who cured him - very expensive but his colic was chronic so worth it.

guess just got be patient with the piles and hopefully they will shrink soon, least the cream has numbed the pain so they lot less of a pain in the ***!
