Personal Question- Hemorrhoid/skin tag removal?


Anyone have hemorrhoid surgery/skin tag removal after having baby. What procedure did you have done and how bad was it? I hear the pain is terrible and I've heard horror stories that things didn't end up much better after surgery for repair.
While of course cleanliness is the main reason for surgery, cosmetically.. I just need to have it fixed. I've NEVER had them before and then get them my last 6 wks of pregnancy. The dr said he'll do whatever I need to fix it.. but I have to wait my 6 wks to be released from my OB. so once I heal from one thing down there, I'll be starting all over I believe with this surgery... oh well.. I got a beautiful baby out of it =) hehe

Just wanted to hear your experiences if you've had any.

I haven't had a baby yet so it wasn't due to that but I had awful piles & surgery to remove them. I'll be completely honest with you, it was the worst experience of my life.

First they tried to band them which was painful during but no real recovery time, I was out that evening. Didn't work as they were too extreme but if it works for you then fantastic!
Then I had a full hemmeroidectomy. I stayed in hospital overnight and whilst there I was so drugged up, the pain was completely fine. At home, it wasn't too bad for the next 2 days but I couldn't go to the toilet (even after taking softner for the past 4 weeks in preparation). 7 days later (looking 6 months pregnant) and I finally went, the searing pain was like nothing I have ever felt before. TMI - I was only able to do it in the bath, the positioning of being on a toilet made it much worse. For the next week, everytime I went, it would bring me to tears. I couldn't move, sit down, anything. It was just constant pain. I had 3 weeks off work and should probably have taken one more. One thing that did help was a cream called rectogesiac (sp) it gave an intense headache for 5 minutes after applying but was the only thing that could help.

It did cure the problem but left me with skin tags which is where the good news is for you ladies that just have tags! I had the tags removed as a separate surgery 7 months later and it was a completely different experience! I was uncomfortable for about 2 days but not in pain and was completely fine after that! It made a huge difference.

My advise would be to get it treated asap. My surgeon said if I'd been referred a lot earlier then I wouldn't have needed the full surgery. If you do need to have full surgery for removal, allow yourself 2-3 weeks recovery. Have regular warm baths, take all the pain meds that you can & use stool softners for a good few weeks before.

Hope you get it sorted :-)

oh gee, I appreciate your reply and experience, although I can't lie it makes me a bit nervous (as if I weren't already LOL).
He seems to think mine aren't bad, so I'm definitely hoping he's right. He'll be banding while I'm out for the tag removal, so hopefully that will also help with some pain issues. I'll go home same day. Hoping he gives me something for pain too. Of course, other than tylenol or something

If he's just banding & removing skin tags then you'll be absolutely fine! I had no problems with that what so ever. Glad you've got an understanding doc who's doing this for you so quickly!

Yeah, that's all he's doing. Oh goodness! So glad to hear that I'll be good! I've heard WAY TOO MANY horror stories about these hemorrhoid procedures. I'm hoping you and doc are right! I'm scared, but TBH, I won't have sex with hubby again until it's fixed. Too self conscious.. and even though we've been married 8 years, I still want to keep everything like we first got married. It's something we both feel very strongly about.. we want to keep things fresh, and I'd be too embarrassed to be less than my best as silly as that may sound!

quick question- with the banding, they fall off right? So no skin tag should remain after that I would need to get removed?
