Hemorrhoids are normal blood vessels in the area of the anus. However three in four adults will have symptomatic hemorrhoids at some point in time in their lives. Hemorrhoids do not usually cause serious health problems but can be very uncomfortable when irritated.
Hemorrhoids usually occur the older we get. It usually occurs with straining from bowel movements either with diarrhea or chronic constipation. Also seen in pregnancy, pelvic masses and prolonged sitting and in obese people.
The CRH O’Regan Hemorrhoid Treatment process is easy, fast and painless. Using a gentle suction device, your doctor places a small rubber band around the base of the internal hemorrhoid. The procedure typically takes less than a minute. During the first 24 hours, you may experience a feeling of fullness or dull ache in the rectum. Over -the-counter pain medication will provide relief.
The band cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, causing the banded tissue to fall off, typically within a few days. The hemorrhoid will shrink, relieving your symptom. If you have multiple hemorrhoids, your doctor will treat each one separately.
