I wanted to share this article with you and my experience in hopes that it may benefit someone. I have had DD for many many years and have had symptoms that my doctor never associated with DD. For example over the past 5 years or so I’ve had lower left back pain intermittently, and left side testicular pain as well. My doctor thought my testicular pain was being caused by an enlarged prostate, so antibiotics, didn’t work. I’ve been living with it, taking NSAIDS to relive the pain. But, the lower back pain is the larger issue, my doctor prescribed a topical NSAID to relieve the pain and it worked, so over 5 years or more I’ve been using it on a regular basis. Now I realize the back pain was associated with the lower left abdominal pain. In the past the two had been separate. Now I’m getting a sigmoid colectomy to remove the diseased portion. My lower left abdominal pain is now in sync with my lower left back pain. So I thought, hmmmm, maybe the topical stuff had something to do with all this. I googled NSAIDS and diverticulitis, guess what, there is a direct link. I’ll post a link below as it will probably be moderated.
