Complications after Hemorrhoid banding (rubber band ligation)??


Thu, November 07, 2019 6:36 PM

I have a couple of internal hemorrhoids - got banding done ONCE about a little over a month ago - then went back 2 weeks ago to get banding done again since I was experiencing some bleeding with BM still.

For two weeks straight, I'm experiencing some pinching / straining sensation in my rectum area and it's affecting my sleep significantly. I feel it too when I'm sitting down - but it comes and goes, and when I'm working/distracted, it doesn't bother me. But when I'm lying down ready to fall asleep, I feel the pinch / a bit of spasm / straining that keeps coming and going the entire night. I tried lying on my back, on my two sides, nothing helps. I end up sleeping only a few hours every night since then. I also have good BM every day without blood at all.

Has anyone experienced this? :(

Hi I've just had a perianal absess that is common with UC and chrones witch I have . I have the spasms as well not sure if it was related to that but I know what you mean hard to sleep I find it difficult to tell if I need to pass wind or poo to be honest so that makes everything a bit awkward even when trying to sleep I wake up just to pass wind becuase I'm that used to rushing to the toilet that I usually ending up running to bath room then some times end up need ing to use the toilet in the night . Think it's just my body has got used to doing that but not nice when trying to sleep . Know that doest realy help with the problem but I feel your pain :)
