In so much pain .. Hemorrhoids.. TMI

I just delivered my son 5 days ago, and ended up with a hemorrhoid. Each day at some point It flares up to the point of me being in So much pain I don't even know what to do with myself?! How does anyone function like this?? During a flare up the cream from the hospital and the tucks does absolutely nothing it's so painful. All I can do is lay down and take Motrin, ice pack my butt and ride it out . How long does this last and what else can I do for relief during a flare up???? I'm currently bed ridden and squirming in pain 😖😭
