I have had one acute attack of Diverticulitis years ago and it was horrible but after taking a few days worth of antibiotics everything was better. Not this go round. My attack started 4 months ago with tenderness in the lower left abdomen. I was prescribed flagyl only and my symptoms improved but never cleared up. A month later I was prescribed Flagyl and Some other Antibiotic (not Cipro) and the symptoms only slightly improved . Finally I went to a gastro and he prescribed 12 days Flagyl and Cipro , I went a liquid diet and the symptoms started clearing up on day 4. I still have lingering pain and twinges but they are less by the day . How long can the pain last. Also the antibiotics are bad news. I think they have beat me down as much as the attack itself. Does anyone else have lingering pain that gets worse as the day goes on? Also does anyone experience a fullness in the lower abdomen below the belt line?
