Internal hemorrhoid

11/10/2009

Question:

I had prolapse internal hemorrhoid band three times the last was 2 weeks ago. I wonder when is the hemorrhois shrink completely because my is still pop out every time I went to the restroom and also. I having very irriate after passed stool feel like burning and urge to want to go the restroom second time but actually not. thank you very much

Answer:

The rubber band should pinch off the hemorrhoidal tissue included in it after 7-10 days. If you are still prolapsing tissue after 2 weeks, have the doctor that banded your hemorrhoid take a look and see what the exact issue is.
