I was diagnosed with diverticulitis in October 2014 after an emergency admission which had been misdiagnosed for 3 days as a bladder infection.
I had complications with an abscess and a small perforation.
I was kept nil by mouth for 4 days in case they needed to operate and fit a stoma, which I narrowly avoided.
I had a sigmoidoscopy 2 weeks after leaving hospital but it had to be terminated at my descending colon due to the amount of pain it was putting me through.
Apart from the initial debriefing after this I haven't heard a thing, no follow up appointment. Unassuming everything was ok.
Anyway, 6 months on I have been ok until this week.
I have pain, nausea when I eat, feel drained and tired and I also have diarrhoea as well as bad reflux to the point it is burning my throat.
I have been given antibiotics to ward of any infection.
The worst thing is the feeling that you are on your own because it really gets to you.
I am trying not to panic as this makes the symptoms worse.
Is what I am feeling normal? It's really getting me down even after 2 doctors have told me that my bowel seems to feel ok in that there are no lumps and bumps that shouldn't be there.
Any help would be appreciated.
