Oh gosh, there are so many awful things that are related to the gut, it's so scary and can be so painful, not to mention inconvenient as it's hard to schedule fun things as you never know how you are going to feel. I've had divert three times and resectioning has been mentioned. I'm now dealing with c-dif from the antibiotics of the divert I had back in late Feb. But the internal hemorrhoids feel weird as you don't really know if you are constipated or if the hemorrhoid is swollen. I take a sitz bath now which apparently helps to shrink them.
