I’ve been dealing with this now for 5 weeks. I can’t tell you how many misdiagnosis I’ve had. From gas/constipation to a clear colonoscopy
3 ER visits, 3 cat scans an X-ray two colon preps. I’m probably forgetting something.
My primary ordered the first cat scan, no dye, to rule out kidney stone and then stated me on antibiotics for diverticulitis. When they were running out she referred me to the gi doc.
I landed in the ER for the first time. That’s when they said gas and constipation. No relief
Second trip to the ER and constipation and gas. Sent home with colon prep. No relief.
Then my colonoscopy got moved up and the gi doc says no diverticulitis some diverticulosis but o was good on the back end.
So now this week I land I the ER for my third trip and the cat scan shows it. Diverticulitis. I’m sent home with two antibiotics, 800 mg ibuprofen and Percocet for pain. Today is my third day of being laid up. No real relief yet and I can’t keep missing work.
I really think that people that haven’t experienced this need a small dose. Even my wife seems annoyed that all I want to do is lay in the fetal position in bed. This has to get better soon.
