It was discovered from going to the doc for a fever and a CT scan that I had some micro-perfs from diverticulitis along my lower intestine / colon, which I spent 4 days in the hospital on IV medication until my white blood cell count was down and sent home with 10 days worth of Amoxicillin.
I was released last Sunday, and all week I have been having pains in different parts of my stomach, and I am starting to get really worried as to why I seem to not be healing.
I have been doing a low fiber diet, eating very small portions every day with stool softener daily, however I now have a new pain once I try to lay down for the night, I am getting radiating pain from what feels like different organs or different parts of my GI track.
I had a 2-3 day stint of mind blowing testicle squishing type pain that I just found was due to sleeping through needing to urinate, once I made it a point to get up every time I even thought about peeing that subsided (thank god).
I'm not getting a fever and maybe just slight chills if I'm in bed, but I keep my house cold, so the only thing I have to go on is this now increasing pain that only occurs when I lay down.
A heating blanket only very slightly helps to prevent it, and once the pain starts going it amplifies quickly until I take a Percocet which I thankfully still have 8 left and a shower just to take the edge off the pain.
Stools are fine, no diarrhea or blood or anything abnormal at all except some pain while passing them, and I guess at this point I am afraid I'm going to miss a pain warning sign and make things worse to an irreversible point - Can anyone confirm how long they're pain continued after a similar situation?
