Tucks pads and ice packs helped me when I had my babies. There was a foam they gave us at the hospital too. I cant remember the name but I think it was available OTC. Sitz baths are nice too-she can alternate the ice packs with warm sitz baths. She should use something like Benefiber to keep stools soft and dont use toilet paper-get those wet flushable wipes.
I had to get my banned after each delivery. The doctor puts an elastic on them and they fall off after a few days. It is uncomfortable and can be painful. But I had no choice because every time I went to the bathroom they would protrude. You can have surgery on them but the hemorrhoid has to be the size of a grape. Mine were but I had to wait too long for a doctor. Now I am fine and glad I had them banned.
Hi, you have been given some great advice already, other things that will help, are to increase the fiber in your diet and aim to eat 25-30g of insoluble fibre a day, such as wholegrain bread, cereal, and fruit and vegetables.
Also, drink plenty of water. Aim to drink at least six to eight glasses of fluid a day and avoid too much caffeine (found in tea, coffee and cola).
Hoping your daughter is feeling more comfortable soon. And congratulations on becoming a grandmother : )
