I had an endoscopy in Jan 2014 after years of having a pain in my lower left side of my abdomen. The endoscopy was unsuccessful due to 'fixity' (a term used by the consultant) of the seigmoid colon which meant that he could get no further without the risk of damaging my colon. It was painful when he reached the point at 'fixity'. I was told that I had diverticular disease and given advice on diet etc.
For about the last few weeks, I have been experiencing pain in the same area, but this pain is now extending what feels like through my pelvis and into my lower back just above the buttock. I am wondering if this is because of the 'fixity' (think this means that the colon has attached itself to the abdomen wall) or could it be an ovary issue. This only seems to happen when I am lying on my right side when I go to bed. As soon as I lie on my back the pain disappears. Perhaps the colon is pulling when I lay on my right side. Could this be the diverticula disease?
Any helpful suggestions would be most welcome.
