Who has done infrared photocoagulation for hemrrohoids?

Postby NeuropathicGuy » 08 Dec 2009, 16:49

Ok I know it seems that every few days I'm back with another one of these "who has done X and Y" questions, but here goes again...
Lately I've been having a bit more bleeding after bowel movements, but not necessarily that insane fissure pain to accompany them. My abdominal CT and partial colonoscopy didn't find anything weird so I'm pretty sure it's either my fissure or hemorrhoids acting up.
Since the bleeding isn't coming with severe pain, I'm thinking it might be hemorrhoids, and mean to see my CRS about it. I know she offers infrared photocoagulation as a first line treatment for hemorrhoids. I'd rather do that than banding if it can help. Have any of you all tried it before? If so, any experiences to share?
Thanks guys!
