Hi! I was just diagnosed a week ago with Diverticulitis. Had a cat scan to confirm at the ER. I have never heard of this up until last week. I am a fairly healthy 36 year old. I have a 3 year old and a 13 year old. I've always been able to eat anything I wanted. This just came out of no where and I don't like it. Lol. I was given 2 antibiotics. Cipro and flagyl. I'm almost finished with the antibiotics. My stabbing pain actually went away after 1 dose of antibiotics. I had an appointment with the Gastro specialist yesterday. I was told absolutely nothing about what's going on with me. Only that if you're young and get this it tends to be more aggressive. They scheduled a colonoscopy for next month. I have been nothing but researching online. I've read so many different things I don't know what to think. But for now my question is I have no pain. I'm just tender on the left side of my stomach. Almost a bruised feeling. Is this normal? It's been 8 days since my first attack. Also I don't know the best way to explain this but my bowel movements aren't normal. I do go every morning as I always have but it's running. Not what I'm used to it looking like. Is this normal? I've been in a bland diet. Actually barely eating. I've lost 5lbs. I'm scared to eat. I feel popping and growling in my stomach on the left side. Is this normal? How long will I feel like me again? Sorry for all the questions. It's all new. 😩😩😩 Thanks in advanced!!
