If you’ve been after a friend or loved one to do something about a first-time or recurrent hemorrhoid problem, don’t think your job is done once they’ve made their doctor’s appointment.
There are a few things to keep in mind to help you be a supportive coach during the entire process. Before the doctor’s visit, for instance, you can help research treatments so that you’ve got a good list of questions ready for the doctor. And be sure to have him or her write down their symptoms, as that will help the doctor pinpoint the problem much faster.
There’s also the possibility of a surgical treatment. It’s important to remember that someone who receives a treatment may not be able to drive themselves home after the procedure, so clear your schedule that day in order to take him or her to, and from, the surgical center.
Staying on top of your family’s health isn’t an easy, but being supportive all the way through the process of a hemorrhoid treatment not only benefits them; it also lets you learn all about the procedures and treatments so if it ends of being your turn, you’ll have the routine down pat.
