I have just been diagnosed with diverticulitis just over a week ago at the age of 56 , I have probably had the symptoms for over 2 years but put it down to have no gall bladder which was removed many years ago. The news has come as a real shock but have been slightly overweight for a while and was not great on the exercise front.
I am not a big drinker but have a few pints on the occasional Friday night but have not had a drink since being diagnosed and am not sure what the effect is going to be if I do.
Has anyone had bad reactions to alcohol or has everyone just stopped drink completely as I read i cannot drink at all?
I am a social person and am attending a soul festival in 10 weeks time and the guys I am going with are all big drinkers so doubting whether i should go as it will be so hard to try and eat and drink the right things.
I am feeling quite low after reading many things regarding this illness as it seems life is not much fun once you have it.
