After thinking that I had IBS for two weeks and in a huge amount of pain, I rocked up at the doctor to be told that I have diverticulitis. That I would now have it for life and would 'soon find out what suits me and what doesn't.' When I asked for more info I was told to 'Google it.' There has been not mention of a colonoscopy (thank goodness) or further treatment once I have finished the antibiotics.
?Sounds stupid I know, but does this mean I have Diverticular Disease? How often do people have flare ups? What sort of food should I avoid? Do people get signs of it up front, and is there anything you can do to head it off? I do not want to get things out of perspective - but don't want this to control me. Please help
