Hi I am at present having tests for what the doctor believes is diverticulitus, waiting for sigmoidoscopy later in the month, but all symptoms point to this diagnosis, just wanted a little advice please, I have been having severe left hand side pain and diarrhea and constipation for weeks now which was why insisted on a proper check as it did not feel like the IBS they constantly say I have. After my first consultation was told to take colpermin and fybogel which have both helped immensely, but my question is does the constant gnawing, sicky uncomfortable feeling go away once the colon has calmed down or is that yucky feeling always there. I am trying to change my eating habits which also helps, but love a good old cappuccino, is this a no no. I am now scared to eat anything with seeds and am desperate for a curry, what helps for you and what is a real problem.
