Well guys (and gals),
Went to ER the other day with what I thought was appendicitis (almost wish it was). Doctors were convinced it was as well, but to be sure we did the CT scan. Results came back as acute diverticulitis. They released me because all my vitals were fine and because of my age (I'm 33). They give me cipro and Flagyl to take. Also said liquid diet for at least 24 hours, then introduce foods slowly. My main concern is after 48 hours it still feels like a severe cramp going down my whole right side. Should I expect this to continue to hurt for a couple days. I would've thought treatment would've helped this by now. I've been bed ridden for 3 days now because it's pretty painful to walk. I've eaten very little because I'm concerned about how it will react.
Should I be nervous about eating and about still experiencing pain? Peeing is the worst because it really hurts as the pressure of the bladder is released.
Any help or what I can do going forward would really be great, I'm nervous about this.
Thanks in advance,
