Apart from my doctor advising that to take immodium for more than a few days at a time, he could not offer any other treatment to control my persistently regular diarrhoea. I was diagnosed in Jan this year with Diverticulitis in the sigmoid area, after a colonoscopy. I have diarrhoea almost daily, mostly urgently, with wind and blopating but mostly with no pain. I cannot go out until it has all finally gone...if I have to go out in the morning, I take Immodioum. Usually by early afternoon, the coast is clear so to speak, and I can risk it, but nothing is guaranteed so its always a worry if I have to be away from a toilet. Does anyone know if theres a treatment tyhat will help regulate the bowel's habits, as I feel mine has gone completely out of sync, compared to how it was before I developed diverticulitis over the last year. Anyone with the complaint will understand how your life has to revolve around the nearest toilet, lol, so youre always worried about embarrassment, and spoiling any social events for your companions. You have to carry spare underwear just in case, wipes, plastic bags, etc, not to forget spare change for loo pay machines! Its all a bit depressing, but I know I'm only one of many, so dont intend to let it get me down. Any advice greatly appreciated. Oh btw I am an otherwise fit and healthy 71 year-old.
