Childhood and many years of constipation. followed by years of IBS. Diagnosed with diverticular disease a few years ago. Last year had first flare up and then a second. These happened in lower right side. Further tests revealed a benign tumour on right ovary so had full hysterectomy and hoped for the best. Sadly just had to take metronidazole for an infection. Made me feel awful. However I did then have a couple of days without right side pain which made me realise that it is always there. I have taken friendly bacteria (vsl3) off and on for last few years. These have helped but was taking regularly when infection occurred.
I cannot take buscopan or mebervine as they stop me from having a wee. High fibre is a disaster. I try to stay away from summer fruits, seeds, nuts and whole foods as they also trigger symptoms.
Very fed up. Any suggestions you lovely people?
