As of 09:00 this morning I have a Hemorrhoid that has prolapsed, which I suspect is self inflicted from the gym. I have tried pushing it back in but with no success. I phoned my doctors surgery to ask for an urgent care appointment to be told that they have none until next Tiuesday! I have researched it and it looks like I have a level 4 prolapse so I am a little concerned. I have put some Anusol cream on it and will have a warm bath but should I be doing anything else?
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. How long have you had the hemorrhoid? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: Since this morning. Just a little Anusol cream
JA: What did you discuss at your last visit to the doctor?
Customer: I haven't had a visit to the doctor about this
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
This is of course bothersome but not dangerous

The anusol cream and the warm bath are all you need for now

And it's not an emergency situation

Tuesday is soon enough to see your doctor about it

Please let me know if you need any more information
