Hi I am new to the fourm and could realy use some advise. in 2003 i had bloating and rectail bleeding. the dr sent me in for a barium enema. it showed I had a divetriclum, then this test result was hidden from me. the bleeding and bloating got worse. i went back to my doctor, he said the problem was hemroids and said the barium enema was entirly normal. for the next 4 years I got worst and worse. being poor I was living off barries all summer. by the end of summer I would be in rough shape. the drs got so tired of me, they tried to put me on skitsophrenic pills because of my imaginary desease. last year my colestrial and iron levels where way up. I finaly had such a bad case of infection and pain that they ordered a barium enema. it showed diverticulitits through out the entire colon. instead of the drs admiting they where wrong, they just shut down there practises and left. my question is, can a bad case of diverticulitits cause life treatning problems like iorn overload and dvt, high colestreal.
