Skiing with Hemorrhoids

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
OK, don't laugh, well ok, maybe laughing is ok. Still, I've got a hemorrhoid. And it's kinda bad. It kinda hurts, like a lot. It seems to be getting a bit better every day.

I want to go skiing tomorrow, real bad. But I'm worried that if I ski, the ROID will RAGE and it'll take me another week to get rid of the thing.

Anybody had this misfortune and care to comment on whether I can, or should, go skiing? Will it just hurt me too bad? It's pretty ouchy, just walking around is sort of strange.

Gotta be a first! And your first post to boot!

Anyway, no experience there. Just take them pills and enjoy them, and the skiing...

You should be OK to ski. Just take along one of those inflatible doughnut shaped pillows to sit for the chair rides.

I'm not going to post using my real user name, am I?

This is my "roid specific" user name. Ha ha.

Seriously though, walking is difficult. mogul skiing might tear me apart and set me back a few weeks. I'm worried, especially since I seem to be on the mend. Anybody know how much damage I could do?

Just get some of that "gel" stuff at Walgreens. It is soothing, will shrink whatever is there and you'll feel alot better. Better take the tube along so you can reapply! Don't let it keep you from skiing!

People can go and laugh away, but you too will have 'roids some day.

Get some Desitin and smear it on the offending 'roid and go skiing. Desitin isn't cheap but works better than Preparation-H for allowing acitivites.

Yeah, I've had to ski with a couple of imperfect A-holes before.

I've also had to ski with a perfect A-hole sometimes too.

Patient: "Dr, it hurts when I hit myself in the head like this."

Dr: "Stop hitting yourself in the head."

Sorry, but couldn't help but to LMFAO!!!!! My co-workers thought I'd finally lost it and asked if I were ok.

There was a thread a while back about remembering your first post on EpicSki. Several years from now, you will be able to look back in these threads and be reminded of this. :

The cold ski lift chair may help to cool things down. However, the firmness of it may not be so good. ("Hurts so good" ) Maybe some extra padding would help.

Just remember: a bad day skiing is better than a good day at work. Have fun.

Oh, I've been applying prescription cream and ointment for days, and it's incredible how bad it is. Even fully creamed up, it is difficult to sit, difficult to laugh, regardless of how funny of a situatoin this is!

ha, funny. i'm SURE i'd get some funny responses over there.

but don't stereotype me. I'm 20s, incredible shape, and a ski instructor. When I ski for fun, we hike, huck, etc. my post is serious, but i definitely know it's ridiculous! and don't laugh (too hard), cuz someday you'll have them too! nobody talks about it, but there's a reason why preparation h has a huge presence in the drug store aisle!

Most women who've been pregnant can relate. Imaging having a watermelon in your gut pushing down on that thing!!

Sorry, but skiing will make it worse. Use suppositories instead of cream because it will last all day. Then go to your doctor and have him/her (!) band it. It is relatively easy, no anesthetic or anything and in a week or so it will be completely gone. Then get yourself some Psyllium husks and put them in your OJ every morning. the extra fiber will keep the dreaded things away.

I know it's funny because it is bathroom humor, but if you've ever been stricken you know it is no laughing matter. My sympathies to you B, er, R.M.

I don't know about those pills.... I took them for 'roids one time.

I gotta be honest with you, for all the good they did, I might as well have shoved them up my a$$.

Troll Alert!

Ski naked. The breeze will chill those babies out.

When your A$$ is on fire, there's less movement skiing than walking. Stick to the blues and try not to fall.

And PS....the reason PrepH is such a big hit in the drugstore might not have all that much to do with the Big H.

Sorry RM. I couldn't resist it any longer. You might find a solution to your "issues" over at TGR. I just had to do it, there was no other option.

If it is thrombosed, it will take a while to improve and if worsens or slow to improve you may need intervention (slice it open and remove the clot). If it is just prolapsed and engorged, then you would get most benefit from soaking in a SITZ bath. High dose salt solution that will 'suck' out the fluid and allow it to shrink down. Epsom salts would work as well. Osmosis can work to your benefit.

Maybe snowboarding would be better since there's not ass much movement in "that area" (given that your legs don't move as much relative to each other). Plus all that time sitting on your butt ass you strap in might be kind of soothing.

I had a friend at Whistler who claims sitting on cold, as in concreat or stadium benches or even a chair lift caused his 'condition'. His suggestion...hot tub.
