This is my very first post on any forum but reading through there seems to be good advice offered.Last year my Colonoscopy showed nothing as did ultra sound. Had CT scan in February 2017 and diagnosed with 'likely' diverticular disease. Some inflammation seen in sigmoid colon with some thickening of bowel wall .No antibiotics offered. Consultant said I can eat anything but no further advice given. Have had low level intermittent pain(mainly left sided pain ) most days for a long while but no constipation or diarrhea. Regular bowel movements .I do take a probotic every day and eat a high fibre diet. GP is lovely but offered very little advice and said it was diverticulosis.I suffer from health anxiety and was put on 10 mg amytryptiline which does help.I thought a CT scan would show diverticular pockets but am not sure if the 'likely' diagnosis means DD or not as not clarified.. Surely inflamation seen suggests diverticulitis.I am at a loose end with this as the pain on a daily basis is quite depressing. I am not sure what a flare up is, so would be grateful for any advice on the way forward. Having read discussions on this forum I understand that there are people with much more severe symptoms than me.
