Hemorrhoids Treatment, Symptoms and Prescription

Hemorrhoids Treatment, Symptoms and Prescription

Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I've been diagnosed with internal hemorrhoids that protrude slightly from my anus. My colorectal surgeon recommended rubber band ligation, but I'm interested in natural remedies like a high-fiber diet, sitz baths, and Preparation H. Do you think these methods will eventually make the internal hemorrhoids shrink and retract on their own? How long should I continue with these treatments before expecting significant improvement? It's been nearly two weeks, and while there's some progress, they're still visible. I'm experiencing irritation and a sensation of bulkiness around the affected area, but no bleeding.
