I had a very severe bout of diverticulitis but had the added problem of sceptacemia and was totally unaware of the situation until it suddenly happened. I also have 2 fibroids and when I was admitted they discovered that an ovary was enlarged. I have since forgotten about the ovary and it appears it is still there and have got a quick follow up which will probably result in a full hysterectomy. My consultant was fantastic Mr Alberts as I was critical for 10 days - on morphine.

    I have suffered with divaticular for 10yrs I get very bloated the only thing I have discovered is if I eat all boiled food (very boring) I feel better, also if I drink red whine my bowel movement was better, but I was turning into an evening drinker so I had to stop that, but I do get very bloated

    Hi there,

    Did any of you have a colonoscopy done..I'm scheduled to have one done in 2 months time and I'm scared of the risks involved..i.e perforation of the bowel which is life threating.

    I had a internal examination and the specialist said it was probally IBS or piles but wanted to do a colonoscopy to make sure...

    P.s I've been told you have a lot of pain afterwards is that true?

    hi i have diverticulat disease and have been hospitlised twice in 3 months with peritinitus, this is when the diverticular grows abseses and one or more burst, so now i have to have part of my colon removed, my consultant has been telling me for 3 years i have to have this op but i did not fancy having a bag on my side, but now i have no choice, he has said he may be able to take this bag off and join the colon back together after about 4 months but he cannot promise anything, to answer your question weather a colonoscopy hurts after i had no pain , and i have had about 6 of these through my illness, dont worry you will be ok, regards jeanie

    No pain afterwards. Honestly.

    The risks are very minimal. They really are very careful and talk you through it as you go. Good Luck.

    P.S. Why are you having to wait so long? Normally they don't 'hang about'
