I was hospitalized again for acute diverticulitis. 2 cat scans later the reports came back no abscess, perforation. But I was admitted for 4 days and given IV antibiotics liquids for 2 days then soft diet etc. Here's the thing with me. I don't get constipated, or diaherra never have. I've always eaten well. Lots of probiotic's water I don't even have flippin hemroids but this is the 3rd attack in the past year. The first two were very small abscesses that did not need to be drained. I see the surgeon tomorrow. I'll be getting a colonoscopy/endoscopy as soon as I heal from this. I have decided to go ahead with surgery. It's affecting my quality of life and I'm scared to death of a perforation and sepsis. I've done everything right EXCEPT I ate a side of French fries which I don't normally do. The next day I knew right away I was getting into trouble. Big big mistake. I'll NEVER eat those darn things again. Literally I've had fries 3 times in the past year at local restaurants and all three times this is what happened. So I'm taken the big surgery leap. But I will say I'm a bit nervous about that but I can't handle the pain, nausea and the other crap that goes along with this disease. I'd love to hear from post surgery patients.
