Has anyone had a rubber band ligation for hemorrhoids? My friend is considering having it done but, is terrified of everything she reads online. Is the procedure that painful and risky?

I don't use any of the bone sparing medications because of the side effects. My chiropractor recommended Bone Restore with Vitamin K2. These are sold thru Life Extension. They contain 3 types of calcium, Vit D, magnesium, K2, etc. The K2 is important because it keeps the calcium in your bones and directs it away from your arteries. I read several scholarly articles from the National Institute of Health and they all recommended the K2 along with the calcium. Hope this helps.
I have had microscopic hematuria ever since I went thru menopause. I have had every test in the books trying to find a cause – there is none. I was told that since my estrogen levels are to the point of being non-existent, this causes the tissue to thin and allows traces of blood to leak thru the fragile tissue. It is quite common in menopause and post menopause. My urologist recommended topical estrogen cream which is quite safe because all it does is replenish the tissue locally which helps with recurrent UTI. Hope this helps.
I also take Eliquis. I had one episode of A-Fib 4 years ago that lasted only 1 1/2 hours. Haven't had a problem since. Eliquis seems to be the safest of all anticoagulants because it has significantly less risk of bleeding. It actually has less bleeding risk than aspirin. I've cut myself several times and have not had any problems
I just started taking a vitamin offered by Life Extension. It is called Bone Restore with K2. It was highly recommended. It contains 3 different types of calcium, Vit D 3, K2, Magnesium, Zinc, and Manganese. I also just got off the treadmill after walking 1 3/4 miles. I don't like taking drugs and I feel that they are just pushed on us because it is easier than making lifestyle changes.
Have you heard of the Mona Lisa Touch procedure? I had this done 6 months ago and it helps tremendously. I also used the Vagifem suppositories and it helped but it doesn't really help revitalize all of the tissue. The Mona Lisa Touch builds up tissue inside and out which helps prevent bacteria from entering. It basically returns everything to a pre-menopausal state. The only issue is that it is not yet covered by insurance and costs about $1,800 for the 3 treatments required. Well worth the cost. I was plagued by recurrent UTI's and this helps quite a bit.
