    Hemerrhoids

    What is the best way to treat/deal with a bad hemerrhoid? The bleeding can be quite bad, soaking towels, etc. Dennis is C5 inc. and is also on Coumadin for a blood disorder (not related to SCI).

    Which Symptoms?

    Do you still have?

    Was the feeling completely gone for a while? Pin/needles/pain?

    Was it from an injury or did it 'just happen'?
