Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with Diverticulitis having had several very painful flare ups, a colonoscopy confirmed it. I was just told to eat a high fibre diet and drink plenty of fluids but this still didn't stop another flare up. Now my GP has given me laxatives, which so far seems to help but the downside is that it is causing awful wind that smells so bad that I am starting to avoid going out. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, do you have any advice. It really is so embarrassing and having a real negative effect on my daily life.
