I have had hemmorhoids ( for most of us, a byproduct of constipational IBS) for quite some time. To the point where blood was streaming from my rectum like a cow being milked. I had banding surgery, two years later, a new one came back.
The funny thing is that I only bleed every now and then (once every 1 to 3 weeks - in 1 to 3 day periods), but when i do bleed, the blood streams out, or drips heavily like crazy. ( I would guesstimate about 2-3 cups of blood at a time )
I went back to the same surgeon who recommended stapling or a hemarrhoidectomy. The banding was very painful, and I was told these next options would be no better if not worse. Also, a big chance of incontinence in the future ( for me...this would be more of a nightmare than IBS )
I thought, " Man...i do not want to risk being incontinent because of surgery...hell no...forget that"
I began desperately scouring the Net in search of help...an alternative. Thats how I found this site and the ACV / Hemmorhoid topic. Today is my first day, one application of ACV so far...wish me luck...
**On a side note however, I wanted to share how I actually feel very blessed to have this hemmarhoid, because the only time I ever bleed is when I am experiencing Deep Fear or Stress. Its like I have this barometer that lets me know that I am not Thinking right, Living right, or my Spirit and Faith is not in alignment with God, my higher power. And as soon as I shift my perspective, or as soon as the adversity goes away...I immediately stop bleeding. Right away. Just like that!
Can anybody else look back and see if this applies to them?? Did some stressful event occur in your life and all of a sudden a Hemarrhoid started bleeding or caused you severe pain?? but once you handled the stressful problem,... the Hemmorhoid went away?
Good luck everyone! and Dont worry...be Happy : )
