Has anyone else out there experienced the utterly horrific-ness of thrombosed hemorrhoids?
I've had plain and simple hemorrhoids since my first pregnancy, but nothing like this! I've been practically in tears for two days now with the excruciating pain. I do not have health insurance and would not feel comfortable going to the hospital for it now at 38 weeks for fear of too many questions... plus hospitals are just plain scary!!!
So I guess my questions are:
Anything to do besides sitz baths, ice, Anica, prep h, witch hazel, trying to push it back in, and more water and fiber (I'm not sure it's possible for me to drink more water or eat more fiber!)? I've tried all of those without relief! Does anyone recommend trying to lance/pop it yourself at home? I've read some people have success with that...
How long does it take to go down in size and decrease in pain?
Will it get exponentially worse if I have to give birth before it fully goes away?
Anyone have personal experience to share?
Sorry for TMI! :(
Thank you in advance for any input! Please pray for me!
