Hello, my name is Debbie and I have just been diagnosed with Diverticulitis after a weekend spent at the hospital. There has been a diverticular shaped cloud hanging over me for about 18 months but it was eventually put down to stress related IBS until a big ole flare up last Friday.
I consider myself lucky as the hospital ( after initially diagnosing food poisoning ) gave me blood tests, x ray and a ct scan which revealed naughty little infected pouches of agony.
I know that I'm appearing to take this lightly but actually I feel very distressed, I'm still in pain, my tummy looks like I'm 6 months gone and don't even get started on the dairrhoea -
There seems to be so much information online I feel a bit overwhelmed - where do I start?
