trenace: is this serious withdrawal after a year?

Recommended Posts

Okay this is embarrassing but who cares at this point? My digestive issues have caused me hemorrhoids and whilst it's not excruciatingly painful it's something that causing me discomfort and could easily get worse.. I had a fissure last year that was horrendously painful and I reacted badly to two ointments which I tried and only ended up healing it by giving myself enemas for 3 days. I'm taking movicol to soften my stools so I'm okay on that front but they're not getting any better. Is there anything I could try that ain't going to cause a reaction? The two creams I tried last year contained steroids so I'm assuming it was that that gave me the reaction. Does anyone know of any non steroid containing oiments that actually work? Right now I'm using tea tree oil that kinda soothes it, but it ain't shrinking I don't think.

When I was growing up we used to use Alum for mouth ulcers which would shrink them.  I've just done an internet search for:  alum for hemorrhoids and there are websites discussing this.

 

SA is a site for tapering psychiatric drugs.  We don't treat general medical issues.  If you are after a non steroid ointment you will need to speak to your doctor.  The only reason I responded was because I was curious about Alum and then found out that it might work.

 

Also, do a internet search for:  hemorrhoids support group forum


Being very patient.  I'll get there - slowly.  ETA mid 2021

Hi everyone. Well I'm still here lol. Recently I've had a huge abscess appear on my backside which caused me more pain than I've ever had and I had it cut and drained under local anesthetic which pretty much traumatised me

because I didn't want general for fear of a reaction. So been an amazing weekend for me lol. Luckily I didn't react to the local but I am going to need another surgery, this time under general. Can I please get some advice to regarding whats worked for people and what hasn't worked. I have a sinus down there that keeps reinfecting and I need it cut out because it's causing other abscesses to form and they hurt like hell. 

As far as withdrawal goes I've had some decent days and some bad days but it's all over the place as usual and I'm hanging in there. Any symptom can come and go at any time and I just want this surgery over and done with, with as less trouble and reactions as possible. Any and all advice would be appreciated. Hope everyone's okay anyways.

Hey Deano, thanks for the reply. Can u please clarify the name of the surgery you had because I really need it to be a one time thing with no recurrence? Also which Anaesthetic did they use? I have no intention of taking antibiotics afterward tbh so I'm going to avoid them at all costs.

I'm not sure on the name of the surgery I had,all I know is it was drained and anal fistula was removed,Wound was left open to heal from inside out.

And I had general anaesthetic not sure what kind,sorry I can't be more helpful.

I can say though since I had the surgery I haven't had any recurrence 🤞

Hi @trenace,

 

Sorry to hear about the abscess. Which of these surgeries are you having? https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pilonidal-sinus/


Remeron - 2004-2005 (bad withdrawal)

Clonazepam - 2005-2018 (jumped around March)

Many drugs in between including Lexapro, other benzos and z-drugs, and olanzapine.

Still suffering post-withdrawal from Clonazepam (Klonopin), Olanzapine and Domperidone.
