Do we have to?!

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:09:18

Yes sad

I'd rather not, but its really hurting. I'm dreading each trip to the bathroom.

It's like having given birth all over again.

I'm going to have to go to the docs, arent I?

Twinklemegan Tue 04-Sep-07 23:14:51

I'd say so. Have you any idea what's caused it? Not that I'm asking you to go into detail of course grin

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:14:58

Nobody cares sad <sob>

Well except Madamez.....


Twinklemegan Tue 04-Sep-07 23:16:55

Did we x post? I care too. sadsmile

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:17:00

oh, well, you are being polite and pretending to care...that'll do grin

No idea. Nothing has changed. Bleeds every time now too. sad[tmi]

Twinklemegan Tue 04-Sep-07 23:18:10

Get yourself to the doctors woman! No seriously, you poor thing. It sounds horrible.

ghosty Tue 04-Sep-07 23:19:17

VVVQV .... I care darling ... I do ...
I am not good with 'bum' threads as I have been traumatised by the things you mention ...
but I feel your pain you poor love - it is all nasty ......
It was a long time ago, but I had surgery for the <ahem, struggles to say it> last thing you mention on your list - it was, I have to say, the best thing that ever happened to me and I felt like a new woman the minute I woke up from the anaesthetic - and haven't ahd a problem since smile...
I still don't like talking aobut bottoms though ... sad

oggsfrog Tue 04-Sep-07 23:22:00

I care.

They're a pain in the arse aren't they <snurk>

Really. Go to the doctor.

I've had them so bad that I literally couldn't sit down..... I had to kneel.

I've been in hospital with them, and had a nurse come down the ward with a bloody torch to check the outcome of surgery blush

Get them sorted. They can be the most painful and uncomfortable things ever.

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:22:27

Thank you folks.

Its been making me feel so miserable the last few days.

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:24:32

Lol Oggs...its really bummed me out grin

oggsfrog Tue 04-Sep-07 23:28:59

Go to the doctor.
They have some amazing stuff on prescription only, that really works.
I know. [could do with a 'I know what a sore bum really feels like emoticon grin]

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 04-Sep-07 23:29:41

Surely its blush this one? grin

oggsfrog Tue 04-Sep-07 23:38:16

More a kind of shock this one ??? grin

madamez Wed 05-Sep-07 00:14:12

Yes, go to the GP - have you just given birth? Cos I had them too just after DS was born and felt very sorry for myself for a week or so. But if it's longer than that, then you probably need something stronger than the usual ointments.
However, in the meantime, if you don't already have one, get a small rubber ring to sit on - might sound funny but it does help at least to let you sit comfortably on a chair.

VeniVidiVickiQV Wed 05-Sep-07 00:29:04

No - my last born is 2.5 yrs!!!!

rubber ring/comfy cushion not doing the trick

ghosty Wed 05-Sep-07 00:30:28

Honestly VVV, get an appointment to see the doctor .. get it sorted, you will be so grateful to be painfree I promise.

hippipotami Wed 05-Sep-07 11:36:41

I got fissures out of the blue a few years ago (had also not given birth for over 2 years) I ended up putting some germolene cream on it, the one with a anaesthetic in it - to ease the pain. I did take a look first to see if the problem was piles or fissure (squatting over a mirror, tmi blush)

It was agony for a few weeks, went to the docs who prescribed some cream (can't remember which one) Incidentally, he did not want to look, for which I will forever be gratefull!

Make the appointment VVV, you will feel so much better once you have the proper cream!

thomcat Wed 05-Sep-07 11:41:19

You have my sympathy sweet. Gross and unfair part of life that shouldn't be part of life.

I got my first one after DD1's birth. They went. Came back with DD2 and never really, really totally vanished completley. Now 3 weeks off giving birth and they are back.

Anusol doing bugger all.
Went to doctors and was given suppositories on prescription, but they are not inside I have one on the outside and it won't go. don't know what to do next.

I expect to come out of child birth with them, but to go in having them, jesus, I'll be in a mess afterwards.

I remember trying to sit up in bed to breastfeed DD2 and just not being able to!

VeniVidiVickiQV Wed 05-Sep-07 13:01:19

Aww thanks you lot.

I feel a great deal better knowing that I am not sooo unusual in not having any 'excuse' to have had them occur.

Will ring the docs in a mo to get an appointment. I need to go to get my repeat prescription for AD's anyway.

thomcat Wed 05-Sep-07 14:30:53

My mate has them and she's never even nearly had a child, no excuses needed, oh and I need a certain young man who has never had anything near his bum that isn't supposed to be there and he has them too.

FloriaTosca Wed 05-Sep-07 14:45:49

Not suffered them myself but my brother is at the momenton his 3rd week of complete bed rest with prolapsed thrombotic ones!!!!He has had 2 weeks of magnesium sulphate dressings to try to bring down the swelling but has now been told to sit on a sugar poulticeshockwhich is actually having more effect. They will operate immediately they have got them down to a reasonable size! Glad you are getting yourself off to the Drs but to anyone else lurking ..... Heed His Warning; don't leave them 'till they get to that state!!!

DoubleBluff Wed 05-Sep-07 14:56:54

Ooh Floria I am clenching in sympathy.
FWIW VVV I am suffering too, not quite as bad as you sound, just an on going throb, feel like I want to push everything back up!! (Sorry TMI Iknow)
