So glad I found this forum and thank you for reading. I'm feeling very upset regarding my situation.
After horrific pain and fevers that lasted a week, it went away but came back a few days later. Got admitted to hospital for 5 days and diagnosed with diverticulitis.
The write up of my medical notes has upset me so before I get my colonoscopy I am sitting here so worried. Docs have found lots of diverticuli in both my small and large intestine, they have also written there is a lot of thickening and possible perforations with fat strands, more fluid than normal probably due to the infection.
I need reassurance that there isn't anything more sinister. Has anyone discovered they also have Crohns, ulcers or something similar?
What worries me the most is I do not fit any of the normal criteria.
- I am only 36
- My BMI is 20 and I exercise a lot I cycle 16 miles to work and swim most days (pre pandemic!)
- I don't smoke or drink
- I eat so healthy and understand what high fibre means
I feel so worried and upset of the unknown and what do I do to improve my health if I already am doing everything I can????
Any reassurance or advice would be so welcome.
Thank you x
