I had prolapse internal hemorrhoid band three times the last was 2 weeks ago. I wonder when is the hemorrhois shrink completely because my is still pop out every time I went to the restroom and also. I having very irriate after passed stool feel like burning and urge to want to go the restroom second time but actually not. thank you very much
The rubber band should pinch off the hemorrhoidal tissue included in it after 7-10 days. If you are still prolapsing tissue after 2 weeks, have the doctor that banded your hemorrhoid take a look and see what the exact issue is.
