"My specialist recommended banding. I told a friend who had hemorrhoids from her pregnancy. She raved about your book, so I thought: Why not, nothing to lose. I'll be honest and say I didn't think it could have worked so well or so fast and I thought they must be in there still, hiding and waiting for a chance to come back. I saw my specialist about a month later - he genuinely couldn't believe it. He told me he couldn't find any evidence of hemorrhoids. He asked me what I did and I told him about your treatment. He said: "That will put me out of business," and made it sound like a joke. But I'll bet he hasn't recommended it to any of his patients. Thanks, Janet, your book saved me from surgery."
