How to Gracefully Tackle Embarrassing Health Conditions
Although an estimated 75% of all adults are expected to experience hemorrhoids at some time in their life, there’s still a lack of conversation around this condition. For other medical concerns, there is a huge volume of information online: discussions, testimonials, recommendations, and forums, but talking openly about hemorrhoids is still difficult for many people, even when meeting with their medical professional.
Your doctor is not going to be shocked that you have hemorrhoids – it’s a common condition that affects three out of four adults
Speak with your doctor about your hemorrhoids
There is no need to feel uncomfortable telling your medical professional about any of your symptoms. They will appreciate the additional information, as it can help them provide you with an effective treatment and lead to a quick recovery. Open discussions are a great way to bring attention to an issue that causes physical and emotional pain for many adults, and the more awareness that’s created, the faster it will be for people to find relief from their symptoms.
• Be Open – if you’re more comfortable using non-medical terms, that’s ok
• Be Clear – be specific about the symptoms you’re experiencing
• Be Honest – tell your doctor about anything that may be contributing to your symptoms
If you’re experiencing rectal prolapse or see blood on the toilet paper or in your stool, it’s important that you consult with your doctor about these symptoms specifically and immediately, as they may indicate serious gastrointestinal concerns.
If you’re suffering from rectal itching or incomplete bowel movements, or any other symptoms that may indicate the presence of hemorrhoids, and you already have an upcoming appointment, let your doctor know about these symptoms at the beginning of your appointment. If you don’t have an appointment scheduled, contact your doctor’s office and request a consultation or contact a gastroenterologist in your area to get a definitive diagnosis and begin treatment. Hemorrhoids rarely go away on their own, and if left untreated, may be more difficult to resolve in the future.
Be open and honest with your physician so they can diagnose your symptoms quickly and accurately, ultimately enabling them to present you with an effective treatment, such as the CRH O’Regan System.
