Hi, looking for advice. I went for a Colonoscopy yesterday just to have a check up following my HALO procedure beginning of January. Once I'd woke up and got myself dressed the Nurse gave me a piece of paper telling me they had removed a polyp and that I had Diverticular Disease. I was like oh ok? I asked what it was and she just said it was common and diet lead. Then sent on my way with my friend waiting outside to drive me home. I got in the car a bit shell shocked as never heard if it. I googled it on way home. What confuses me is that I eat a really balanced healthy diet! So exhausted yesterday just went to bed. Woken up today and it's really hit me!! No follow up required (according to paperwork). So not sure where I go? Googling the symptoms has made me panic a little. So do I change my diet when I get a 'flare up only? Or do I avoid bran and high fibre all the time? Thank you in advance 😢
