I was diagnosed 15 months ago and told not to worry. Five days later I was in ER with what I thought was maybe a cyst on my overy. Dr said diverticulitis and I was so shocked I could have fallen off the bed. To present I have had 4 attacks 3 of which needed antibiotics. My doc who did colonoscopy said 2 days liquid then immediately to 30 grams of fibre. EVERY other doctor has said low residue. This last flare up started 7 weeks ago and family doc did not give me antibiotics fast forward Easter Sunday I am in ER with pain everywhere from my ribs down on both sides and down the middle. CT scan we don't see anything must be your DD so take these antibiotics and follow up with surgeon (still waiting to get to that appointment) fast forward 2 days ago pain is getting worse so I went to non life threatening ER told WBC is fine (whew) but here are more antibiotics you can take if you need them. I said I never get a fever so how will I know and the doc looks right at me and she says "you'll know and don't come back here go to proper ER" She also said my WBC was 10000 on Easter and I did not need antibiotics then. WTF? I didn't need them at 10000 but at fine you give me antibiotics. I am so confused. I see the surgeon on the 30th and he is going to say have it out just like he did in October. His rule is two minor attacks and out it comes btw this is the 30 grams immediately doctor. Does any of this make any sense to anyone? I am so confused. Any feedback wouldbe helpful. I have as many days of pain as not but most of the time the pain is just there no need for pain pills. Thanks. Julie
