i was diagnosed with diverticulitis in September 2019. I went to ER with stomach pain, which was similar to the pain I experienced with kidney stones, except I could not pin point the exact place. Upon arriving, I did not have a fever and my WBC were only slightly above normal range. I was given FLAGYL and CIPRO (And hydrocodone-which I did not take. Followed up with colonoscopy on 5 Dec. which showed diverticulosis in the sigmoid and descending colon. Removal of (A) 2 10-15 mm polyps-piecemeal in transverse colon and (B) 9 mm polyp in sigmoid colon. Results (A) colonic mucosa with hyperplastic, serrated gland, one piece is dysplastic - (B) colonic mucosa hyperplastic, serrated.
The past few days I have been having the similar pain which originally sent me to the ER. No fever or other symptoms I am reading about. PMC doctor just went out of practice-have not been reassigned yet. No follow provided from gastrointestinal dr other than repeat colonoscopy in 6 months. Results provided on hospital portal-no explanation/guidance provided. If the pain is diverticulitis-can it go away on it’s own if I gut through pain? Are results worrisome? 50 yr old female-5’5, 150 lbs, 25 BMI, history of kidney stone, switched from cigarettes to vaping (lowest nicotine) 7 yrs ago, ADHD, insomnia. Looking for guidance. Thank you
