Standing for Long Periods of Time
Avoiding standing for long periods of time is necessary when you are experiencing a bout of hemorrhoids.
This situation should be avoided.
As you can imagine the forces of gravity of your entire body are all pulling down in the direction of the anus when in a standing position.
In so doing , you are involuntary adding pressure on the anus area. This situation may help in aggravating the hemorrhoids.
This aggravation may manifest itself in different ways like making them bleed more and or swell more.
The main one that I was concerned about and I am sure you are to, is there is a good probability there will more PAIN.
This situation is worse with an internal hemorrhoid, as the hemorrhoid can come straight out of the anus, making them prolapsed hemorrhoids.
Definitely a condition you would want to avoid
Assuming for your work commitments you are forced to stand for long periods of time. Then the only suggestion that I can give in this situation is take a few days of work, until your hemorrhoids have settle down.
Alternatively, if you can't take time off work.
Just remember to sit at least fifteen minutes in the hour. This should help relax the muscles and pressures around the anus area a little.
