Haemorrhoid's I have a large lump and I can see it too. I can push a bit back in but most of the time it sits outside. I tried some cream just from the chemist to shrink them but it didn't work. Does anyone know anything that would work. I do need surgery for it. My obstetrician said to wait till after I have had more kids before I get it removed or it will come back. Has anyone had it removed had more kids and it didn't return.

How bad is the surgery and pain afterwards I am really scared about it and feel like I just want to get it over and done with.

I know you are scared and want to get it over and done with, but if you do, you risk having to do it twice. Surely that is worse than waiting.

Try a high-fibre diet so you don't strain when moving your bowels. Hopefully that, with the cream, will help. Otherwise surgery may be the only way to get rid of them.
