    Nicola, 

    So sorry to learn you're suffering with this!  My suggestion would be to go get a second opinion from another surgeon and possibly go see a gastroenterologist...

    Please don't put off going!  Something is going on, and I think it would be best to find out sooner rather than later!  

    Please let me know how you get on! xx

      I'm glad you're going back to your gp; but if he does give you the impression that he thinks you're being "soft" or if he fobbs you off, try to get a referral to a gastroenterologist.  The digestive tract is his speciality.

      Most gps and surgeons don't have any idea of the complex processes that are going on.

      Please let us know how you do! xx

    I think they guessed you may have Diverticulitis. But I wouldn't believe that without a colonoscopy by a Gastroenterologist. I'm 58 & have it. It can be age related & it's quite common but people don't necessarily know they have it if only mild. You can get flare ups.
