Newbie - sore cyclist

Postby Langgris » 30 Aug 2014, 00:39

Hello all. I am really pleased to find a dedicated forum with such nice folk across the world sharing details and offering helpful and practical support.
I have been suffering for about 8 weeks now - for the first six I assumed I had haemorrhoids but with the hours of pain after each BM and no improvement went to the doctor. So here I am with AF - following orders - using the ointment, drinking plenty & taking fibre supplements.
Like a lot of you I have bad and not so bad days with a daily cycle of pain & soreness following each BM. The worrying thing is I have not 'bounced back' and seen a quick improvement so it could be I have this put up with this for a long time and something possibly for life.
So has a newbie, I have lots of questions and in turn hope I can be of some use with helping others!

Welcome to the forum the doctor has put you on the usual first line against AF. I would add that taking a warm bath or a sits bath after your BM should help with the pain. its easy for the doctors to just say add fiber the more important component would be to make sure your BMS are soft. You can do this by monitoring your diet which includes fiber (supplements either Metamicil or Benefiber) and stool softener if necessary. good luck and we are here to answer any questions you have.
