My 96 year old mom broke her hip in April. She is still in a SNF getting rehab, but is doing fantastic and hopefully will be coming home in less than a month. She has an external hemorrhoid, increasing in pain from sitting more. The staff has been a bit lax on treating this so I am encouraging them to use more often the hemorrhoid cream. Does anyone have some suggestions that have worked for them or a patient? Need advice on maybe a donut pillow and I even wonder about surgery. I am not crazy about the idea of surgery for her, but I really don't know, maybe it would be the best thing. I saw one Dr with her in Florida and he was no help at all. I do plan on taking her to her own Dr ASAP when she comes home. Thank you and looking forward to getting great advice from this post.
