thrombosed hemorrhoids treatment options

I have had a thrombosed hemorrhoid since Oct 31, and went to the doctor for treatment on Nov 11. The doctor did an incision and drainage of the thrombosed hemorrhoid. It is down about 70% at this point and is being treated 3x daily with Proctosol cream. It is not wanting to shrink completely and go away all together. Could this overtime shrink up completely, and if not what would be the next step in treatment for this condition? Thank you, Sam

Hi, Sam.

Having done this procedure MANY times and had it done to me MANY times (before I learned how to cure my own hemorrhoids) I can tell you that, successfully done, the swelling disappears within a week. Some of the clot (thrombosis) was missed and the procedure will need to be done again. This time it will be easier to see where the missed clot is UNLESS you wait for another flareup before going.

Finally, only by getting rid of WHY you have hemorrhoids will you prevent more recurences even if this one is finally properly dealt with.

This is the first time I have ever had any problem with any type of hemorrhoid. Would this type eventually go away without any further surgical treatment? I have read that it could reabsorb into the blood stream after a period of weeks, is this possible in your opinion? And couldn't the doctors prescribe some type of medication that would go in and break up the clot?,like is done for blood clots in other areas of the body? or have given me some type of drugs to discourage my blood from clotting up immediately after the incision and drainage procedure was done?Thank you, Sam

Hi, Sam.

The reason for removing the clot, surgically, is only to save you a long time (perhaps months) of pain and suffering. Medical clot busting does not work well here because of the rectal muscle bracing that causes the problem keeping the medication from the area.

It eventually WILL go away but what is there to prevent new ones from forming?
