Ok - so I've got a lovely hemorrhoid from my first and its flared up to the point where I can't sit, stand, walk or lie down without being pretty uncomfortable. I've tried the prepH with no luck at all. I have an appt today at 4:45 and they said they'll do an exam to see if its severe enough for a sterroid cream...have any of you ladies had luck with that treatment? I've been this uncomfortable since last night and would love to get some relief asap! I want to make sure they're offering me the best option...my doc sometimes is too hands off for me and if I can request or mention another alternative that might work better/faster, I'd definitely want to do that!
