I got a hemorrhoid about a month ago, after a leg work out. Specifically the day after I did tire flipping for about 30 mins. I went to the Dr about 3 days later and he said it was a grade 2 internal hemorrhoid. As long as it’s not bleeding or hurting he said i should be fine. It only flares up when I have a bowel movement, and varies in size, but retracts quicly as soon as I’m off the toilet. It doesn’t hurt, no itching and for about 2 weeks it was sometimes uncomfortable when i sat down after a bowl movement.
I work out and drink alot of water, along with using flushable wipes when i go potty. I am deployed right now, so the regular use of prep H isn’t always there but I tend to use it 3 times a week. I just got some metamucil in( they don’t have any here). I am kind of worried about taking it though I don’t want to be going crazy on the bathroom breaks.
I just want to know how long will it take to heal or stay full retracted? or will i need to see the dr about taking care of that? if so, how would he take care of it when it only flares when I use the bathroom, that would seem awkward.
im 31. 197 pounds 5’10…losing weight with the working out thought 🙂
