This is all too familiar. Neg scans, but cant tolerate dye for Ct and repeated flare ups. Where do you find a diverticulosis diet? Just have had a postive colonoscopy, and one time I drank something in ER and waited 2 hours and had CT. It was clear , does anyone know what that is called? Yhat did show pockets too, but with dry scan, nothing.

      Thanks Maybabe for your reply, seems to be different things for different people, I get the lightheadedness you talk about and terrible fatigue, but my legs and rectum are the worst pain, hard to believe it could be diverticulitis

    Google Mayo Clinic diverticulitus and it will give you the low residue diet and recommendations for when you feel better. Small meals are important. No bigger then your fist. I hope you feel better soon.
