    I had bloating of the belly mostly left side, abdomen pain. diaherra.

    what are you feeling hope you get answers soon. If it is this you will have to watch what your eating stay away from whole wheat and fibers until its calmed down. Stay away from , Spicy food, onions try and eat plan foods. Or soups. dont eat anything with small seeds as this can get stuck in your colon and will flare up

    . After my surgery l lived of corn flakes with 2 % milk or almond milk. And introduced fiber back in slowly. I don't eat whole grain bread any more. Google what foods reach the colon and just stay away from them for now until the flare up is over. But what works for me might not work for you. I keep a food diary to see what foods make me uncomfortable. Hoping you get answers soon.

      yes unfortunately i thought l had a kidney stone. i went to hosp because could not stop being sick and very ill. i had septic posioning and just hrs away from shutting down. A abscess exploded and caused a hole in my colon. I spent two weeks in hosp on 5 diffrent antibiotics and fluid no food just fluids. Then surgery had moat of my intestines cut away and my colon patched and cleared. If your still feeling horrible and in pain go straight to hospital don't leave it till somthing is deadly wrong.

      You might just need a course of antibiotics and just clear liquids for a few days. Dont want to scare you but if its really bothering you go to emergency.

    The most typical symptom is lower left quadrant stabbing pain, although the pain could be higher or central. People of Asian descent can get right quadrant pain. Sometimes the pain comes over in swamping waves, like childbirth. Then you could have fever/chills/temperature/nausea from the infection, constipation and/or diarrhoea, passing bright red blood.
