After 12 years of IBS and a change in symptoms the last 3 months I have now been diagnosed with diverticulitis. Had a colonoscopy done a month ago and ended up in pain after. Went to 2 different ER's both dismissed me with gas/constipation it took seeing the supervising gi dr at the practice to spot the diverticulitis on the CT. So I was prescribed cipro and flagyl for 10 days. I'm concerned about the cipro it looks like there has been a lot of warnings about this drug and seems that it should only be used now for life threatening serious infections or if nothing else works. Should I be worried about this drugs side effects? Also the gi dr who did my colonoscopy never told me I had Diverticulosis or diverticulitis. I've had numerous ct scans and scopes over the course of 12 years not one dr has seen this. Is it possible the ineptitude of the gi dr who recently did the scope caused this? Thank you.
