How Should I Treat My Hemorrhoids?

By    |   Wednesday, 03 June 2015 10:34 AM

Question: I have hemorrhoids, but my doctor says they’re not bad enough for me to have surgery. But his advice — eat more fiber — wasn’t very helpful. What else can I do?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Go to someone who can remove them for you before they become larger.

While high fiber diets do reduce the bowel pressures that can create hemorrhoids, they may not always be effective. Some still require banding or removal.

Occasionally, hemorrhoids are a sign of larger bowel problems, so be sure the doctor you are seeing knows how to evaluate you properly. If there is any question, seek out a second opinion from a general surgeon of your choice.
