hemorrhoid-bandingWow. My knowledge of this uncomfortable ailment has increased daily. Learning about hemorrhoids banding is pretty much the most graphic education I have had on this subject to date. Frankly, it’s amazing to think that such a procedure exists. You’ll understand as I explain more about what hemorrhoids banding is below.

As you probably have learned by now, a hemorrhoid is a swollen vein in the lower rectum and anus. These are caused by an overload of pressure in that region. This extreme amount of pressure can be attributed to straining when having a bowel movement, poor posture when sitting or carrying heavy objects, constipation, and even pregnancy. The most common form of a hemorrhoid is an internal hemorrhoid. Very few actually need the procedure of hemorrhoids banding.

The few that do need to undergo hemorrhoids banding usually have a hemorrhoid that has clots forming in the vein tissue. This stretches and loosens the vein tissue even more, to the point where it can fall from the anus during a bowel movement. Not to mention, much more pain is endured as well. Once someone reaches this point, they usually opt for hemorrhoids banding.

Hemorrhoids banding is not quite considered an operation. It is performed by your health care professional, however. Generally, true to its name, hemorrhoids banding is where your doctor will put a rubber band (or similar substance) around the excess tissue of your stretched vein. They do this so that the excess part of your vein will shrivel and fall off, so that your body can start to heal itself.

Hemorrhoids banding is only necessary when your vein develops a clot or has stretched to the point where it is hanging outside of your anus. It’s fair to say that by the time you have reached the need for hemorrhoids banding, there is not much else that can be done. To avoid such an uncomfortable and even embarrassing procedure, be sure to take action to heal your hemorrhoid right away.
