Well if you've opened this thread you either have them too, have nothing better to do, or maybe you're just curious. Amidst all the sadness on here lately and the sisters with serious issues i am hesitant to post this comparatively trivial complaint. But being as I am in bed on my iPad with a painful hemmoroid I have nothing better to do other than lie here listening to the summer rain. With all the constipation, diahrrea, constipation....and did I say constipation???? Hemmoroids are pretty commonplace and even when I don't have them I frequently have a lot of itching down there. Even in my best physical and emotional state I usually have the itching. My onc says its probably internal hemmoroids. The only recommendations I've gotten have been preparation H both cream and suppositories ...neither of which works....and tucks...which are soothing but I can't very well walk around and function with them. I would really like some kind of prescription super duper numbing cream. Why doesn't it exist? You would think with all the medical advances that can keep us stage IV cancer patients alive longer than previously possible, that someone would have come up with a solution to this problem by now!!
