Go And see if they can give u xyloproct is stronger also I know this sounds disgusting but put a melted ice cube up ur bottom. ..I had really bad piles and was in agony a couple of weeks ago and I read it on the Internet well it really helped. .. leave it to melt to half the size. ..and pop it in.. it helps shrink them quickly also I found salt baths helped and take a couple of paracetamol and don't stand for too long. The Pressure of standing or walking makes it worse.. make sure u take ur cream withu to hospital they will only give u anusol which is rubbish when u have it bad also if u are constipated it can make it worse. . So If u can get glycerin suppositories to clear u out I used them after someone on here...suggested them good luck all the best for induction x


thanks very much for the advice, I will try anything to relieve the pain, im going to try that now with the ice cube, then I,ll go in a salted bath, a few paracetomol then try & get a decent sleep tonight,

I think that's what makes them worse with me standing a lot im always on the go with having two other kids,

thank you babymother i.ll let you know how I get on x
