Hi. i am new to this forum. i am 42, and in the middle of my second diverticulitis attack in 7 weeks the first time, i was hospitalized for 4 days, and was fine after. 7 weeks later, out of the blue, on monday am, it hit me again. i talked my dr into not admitting me and i am in oral antibiotics . we are scheduled to speak today
older studies suggest i should have surgery given the shirt recurrence. newer studies say to evaluate it on a case by case basis, anyone have 2 attacks in two months? was surgery recommended? anyone have the surgery? after the second attack, the rate of recurrence seems to increase exponentially. what has your experience been when you have more than two attacks? how was recovery both with and out surgery? thank you
