Hemorrhoids can be so uncomfortable and painful! I’d like to invite @darlia @angiejimez @arieon69 @tallygirl @lamerex4 @fotula and @ew100 to join this discussion as they may be able to offer their insights as to what could be causing the discomfort.
You may be interested in some of this information on hemorrhoids from Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hemorrhoids/symptoms-causes/syc-20360268
@pinelake77, if you feel comfortable, would you share a few more details? What type of removal surgery did you have?

Hello. Thanks for your interest. I’m 66 years old. Had a feeling something was up in my lower rectum. A dryness. No pain or bleeding. This was about a year ago. Got a colonoscopy. Showed hemrhoids One internal and one external that I knew about. Decided to get a hemorrhoidectomy feb 25 2019. After 4 weeks the external hemorrhoid was healed perfectly but the dryness in the area of the internal hemorrhoid had returned. Returned to surgeon in July 2019. He went back in and said everything was fine. As the dryness continued to get worse the surgeon went back in again Monday March 9 2020. Said everything was healed perfectly. That my rectum was not dry. Said for me to try pelvic floor therapy. Called them to get info. I’m not sure if this is going to be a waste of time. Ps. No creams, vasoline,or lidocaine has had any effect. I’m going crazy. Not sure what to do. It is a dry nawing uncomfortable sensation. Not sure if the internal hemorrhoid was the cause of this.
You know, after years of being embarrassed, etc, I decided I was going to open up and talk to a GI specialist about internal hemorrhoids. It's the best thing I ever did. I had hemorrhoid banding 3 weeks ago. I never felt any pain, or bleeding or discomfort. I wish I had it done sooner. The initial prep for the banding is minimal and post procedure care is also minimal. Don't be afraid of getting the work done.
