my husband has had several bouts of Diverticulitis which antibiotics seem to help. over the last 6 weeks he has been on very strong antibiotics and a steroid.
He is complaining of bad pain under his rib on the left hand side which really concerns me.
His doctor has referred him for an ultrasound scan and colonoscopy but living in Ireland this can take ages to happen. he refuses to go to A&E. i think he is afraid of what the results might show.
I am going out of my mind with worry and have not slept in weeks.
Could any one here tell me if they suffer from rib pain die to Diverticulitis.
He is 50 years old with Asthma, arthritis in back and neck, severe sleep apnea (waiting on delivery of Cpac machine) and Diverticulitis.
Any help or advice will be so appreciated
