I have been dx'd with diverticulosis like so many people over 40. I had a flare up of diverticulitis (infection) about two months ago. The pain was excruciating. At first the pain subsided with a course of antibiotics. Now I've got that pinching, achy feeling in my lower left side again. Is this something that I just have to learn to live with? It it normal for the pain to come and go without consequence? My doctor said I will probably have to have that section removed if it become infected again. Anyone have this done?
I was diagnosed 3 mo ago with diverticulitis Had another attack about three weeks after the first one. I too still have that pinching pain It is not really pain just a pinch intermittently having a colonoscopy tomorrow and will know if I need to have the surgery I sure am hoping no.
