had my cat colonoscopy scan a week ago and saw my Doctor yesterday for results. I have quite extensive diverticula disease but thankfully nothing else! They scan all my internal organs from under my chest to pelvis so had complete torso MOT! I haven't had a flare up but just IBS symptoms but I can't eat nuts, popcorn, seeds, sweet corn without getting pains in my left side. I started taking probiotic capsules a month ago and have found them really helpful.
