Just having another bout with diverticulitis.

It knocks me out and I have a plane trip in two days. What to do?

    Suggest you check with your doctor ASAP.  You will need medication for both conditions - it's just a case of checking to be sure you can take the two together or if you need alternative medication.

      Thank you will check with Dr. Of course it is Saturday hopefully I will get a reply.

      Continue my clear liquid diet.

    I am so sorry Janice, of all the times to have an attack!    Diverticulitis causes much anxiety because it is unpredictable, planning a trip, holiday etc is a nightmare.  For example, in four weeks time I am going on a very expensive river cruise in Portugal, it is all paid for.  I am terrified that I will have an attack the day or two before, after this I would be capable of travelling with antibiotics although my holiday would be spoilt.  How important is your plane trip?

      Timing is everything. I do have to take this trip.

      Enjoy your trip but make sure you have that medication with you.

      Hopefully if I just rest and take it easy and on the clear liquid diet I will be good.

      Thank you

      I'm sure that you will be ok Janice, at least you have some time to recover.  Hopefully I will be able to take my holiday.   In the last three months, I have lost my mother-in-law and at the end of April, my very young dog collapsed with congestive heart failure and at most has 10 months to live.   Last week a very dear friend died unexpectedly, I need a diversion to take my mind off these sad things in my life.  Take care, I hope that your travel plans are all good. xx
