Collapsed last April. Admitted to hospital for 4 days sent me home as seemed to be a bit better and they were short of beds ! Admitted again 2 days later even worse than first time sent me home after 5 days still with the symptoms. Since then have had 6 flexi sigmoidoscopy the last one under sedation as they were unable to get where they needed to get. Had 6 colonoscopic scans. They thought cancer or chrohns but got letter today saying they reached the area high up in bowel and there is a large stricture but as they can pass the small scope through I should be ok. No cancerous cells but diverticular disease.
Since April I have been in constant pain and go 10 times a day (rabbit droppings lol). All I have been told is go on the internet and look it up. That doesn't help with the pain and the embarrassment I have not been anywhere for nearly a year as too embarrassing.
Been on gluten wheat lactose free it hurt lots. Put on low fibre diet it hurts. Put on even lower fibre diet basically eating rubbish makes me so tired as I am getting no decent nutrition.
As I have no help from the NHS I am asking for help from here. What is best to eat to try and get better. What do you recommend as I see a lot of you have had this dreadful thing for years. I just want me life back. I suffer with chronic fibromyalgia and that takes away enough of my life as it is
All suggestions will be very gratefully received
