IamA mid thirties dude who dealt with hemorrhoids for a decade... I got rid of em two days ago AMA!
After years of dealing with stage three internal hemorrhoids, I did enough research to have surgery. I chose the THD (Transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization) procedure and it was nearly painless so far. I couldn't be more thankful for a great surgeon. I hope this AMA can convince at least one person to get over their fears of surgery.
