...sob. Can barely walk. 6 months pg and very miserable. Scheriproct doesn't seem to be helping.

Be brave, have shower and push it back in... Haven't used scheriproct but anusol pessaries seem to do the trick for me after a few days. much sympathy though. They are incredibly horrid.

ok, so you may have to push it back in more than once....!

Turniphead1 Mon 08-Sep-08 20:09:50

oooh didn't know you can push it back in.

dizzydixies Mon 08-Sep-08 20:13:05

get yourself some lactalose and keep chuggin down water - soft poop only so you're not aggrivating it

only go to toilet when you need to, no straining and when on the toilet sit with your feel up on a stool or step

soak a pad/toilet roll in witch hazel and apply for some relief

clean using wet toilet roll and put vaseline on it to try to help ease it back in

hope something works for you soon

Turniphead1 Mon 08-Sep-08 20:15:26

thanks guys! good advice. jaysus, feel like I might faint (have high pain threshold but Jeez Luoise...)

dizzydixies Mon 08-Sep-08 20:19:10

please PLEASE don't be uspet about this but you HAVE to sort it now before baby comes

my piles after dd1 and dd2 were horrendous and left me in a right state - by being proactive now you might not have that

invest in a childs rubber ring to sit on too for after birth smile

Turniphead1 Mon 08-Sep-08 21:29:29

yep I know - I had them last time (this is no.3) and after pushing they were worse! Will try and be well prepared and get these sorted. 3 months to go.

dizzydixies Mon 08-Sep-08 21:32:58

sorry, didn't mean to be all doom and gloom but faring hell, nobody warns you about that do they?

'come in come in Mrs Dixie, congratulations on the pregnanct, btw, in 10months time you'll be biting on a towel when you have to poop'


NoBiggy Mon 08-Sep-08 21:36:46

Oh Jeez. Mine after DD1 was like a small hand hanging out. Get some of that wet toilet paper (not necessarily the one with the horrid frog - in fact they are a bit too perfumed and will likely sting).

I don't know if those cold gel pads work, I couldn't get hold of any when I needed them. But if you use frozen peas, you smell like you're cooking peas. In your pants.

Put an ice cube in a plastic bag and wrap that in a bit of old flannel and lie on your side with it against the beggar about three times a day. It is fantastic relief and will help it to shrink. The GP also prescribe Proctosedyl which I used for a week and it helped to blast it too. I reused it a bit post-natally and rarely have a problem now. It is ***** miserable isn't it sad

Turniphead1 Mon 08-Sep-08 21:48:24

....and my DH is laughing at me as I hobble around. Bast*rd. Going to have a shower now and use the ice. And buy some witchhazel. used it for general fanjo related discomfort last time too. May go to GP also...

dizzydixies Mon 08-Sep-08 21:52:09

I remember I phoned for a repeat prescription and the practice nurse phoned me back and said I wasn't due any more suppositories as the pack of ten should have lasted me longer (did she think I was melting them down and shooting them up FFS?!?)

I duely informed her that having given birth to an 11lb baby my a*se was ruined and I NEEDED them or did she wish me to hobble up there and show her

needless to say the prescription was waiting on me at the chemist with a box of 80 grin

you could also as about the spray - I know you can't use it whilst bfing but not sure about when pregnant

go and stand on dh's nads with a pair of high heels on and ask him to say the alphabet backwards whilst staying in position - that should give him an idea of what you're going through

hope you find some relief soon

GodzillasBumcheek Mon 08-Sep-08 21:55:54

I would second the advice on lactulose and lots of water - and fruit/veg. The rubber ring idea also - especially after the birth. I had this after the birth of DD3 and it was awful. Poor you.

As for DH - slip a laxative into his cuppa next time he has one and see how he thinks it's funny grin

LittlePushka Mon 08-Sep-08 21:58:31

Agree dizzies...NOBODY tells you this!.. Truly mine were much worse than the birth. Used to wake in the night and sob in pain... made me quite depressed the pain was so bad.

SO my advice in addition to the good advice above is..

go immediately (if not soner) to GP and get some cream and suppositories (I had proctosedyl...fab!). Will help reduce the inflammation and sot the pain out very quickly.

I got all ready and tooled up for after birth of DS2 and ,...nothing! But if ever I get any hint, these things sort it out really fast.

So go, NOW, you trot (best you can wink

emma1977 Mon 08-Sep-08 22:00:01

I am so desperate to make a poor-taste joke about planets and Uranus, but I'm restraining myself.

Kick your dh in the nuts for being unsympathetic- that in the very least should make you feel a bit better.

I would advise clenching with some ice, pushing the bugger back in and keeping your anusol/proctosedyl cream in the fridge.

LittlePushka Mon 08-Sep-08 22:02:41

PS Over the counter stuff did not do a thing for me,...go get the hard core stuff and cut out 3 days of agony.

AttillaTheHan Mon 08-Sep-08 22:13:42

I had bloody horrendous piles after dd2 and I too was in complete agony, to the point where i had to leave the room a couple of times to weep in pain whilst relatives were visiting us. You have my complete sympathy. I echo other peoples advice about the prescription suppositories and I found the freezing gel pad thingy's the best thing to temporarily relieve the pain. They are available in mothercare but cheaper ones could probably be found in chemists, without the gauze covers.
You really must get them sorted as soon as possible and be prepared for after the birth too.
My dh was also pathetically unsympathetic until he saw me in tears and even he managed to stop the 'giblets' jokes for a while.
Good luck.

expatinscotland Mon 08-Sep-08 22:14:31

i got some stuff from the GP after DD2 was born that took away the pain.

but the fecking pile is still there.

i swear if i win the fecking lotto i'm heading to a damn proctologist and getting rid of the damn thing once and for all before i stop off at the plastic surgeon for my tit lift and the dentist for my implants.

you have my empathy.

GodzillasBumcheek Mon 08-Sep-08 22:17:02

What? Before the plastic surgeon shock

expatinscotland Mon 08-Sep-08 22:20:54

yes, before the plastic surgeon.

can't imagine pushing this thing back in.

be like pushing Saturn and all her rings into Uranus. ain't going to happen.

expatinscotland Mon 08-Sep-08 22:23:11

1) ass doctor to get rid of pile from hell
2) plastic surgeon for tit lift
3) oral surgeon for implants and to have two dodgy and filled to hell molars removed and then go back for implants
4) plastic surgeon to have my spider veins zapped
5) plastic surgeon to have my skintone evened out

Yeah, you can tell i've been thinking about all this .

emma1977 Mon 08-Sep-08 22:23:34

I had horrendous bumgrapes after giving birth- in fact they were WAY more painful that my other bits. However, they're gone now (but not forgotten).

The ice and repositioning really helps.

Don't get constipated or push too hard on the loo either.

expatinscotland Mon 08-Sep-08 22:24:36

that's why i'm going to try ibu+paracetamol for the afterbirth pains and try to avoid co-cocodamol. the last thing needed is something that's constipating.
