My wife had 3 external hemorrhoids banded over a 6 week period - one
every two weeks. The first two bandings went well. But the third banding is not healing after two weeks. Seems that every BM she has causes the sore to be irritated so that it does not heal. She is trying to maintain soft stools in order to minimize irritation of the sore caused by stools. She takes psyllium, prune juice, stool softener, & watches her diet so that only foods that result in soft stools are eaten.
