Hi everyone.

After two days of pain in my left side went off to GP.

Said I have diverticulosis, no temperature, did bloods, results tomorrow.

This is all a bit scary for me with my anxiety 😕

    Try drinking bone broth and then moving to a low residue diet for a few weeks and then move slowly toward a high fiber diet.  That really helped me.

    Suzy,

    I believe we're all scared. Diagnosed 7.15.17 and it came out of left field - had no idea what pain that had me doubled over was ... it's definitely a "lifestyle" change.

    Please keep us posted on results.

    Remember, you're not alone.

      Thank you Kerry.

      Wow this was such a shock,as you said pain awful. My pulse went to 125 and blood pressure 175/79 ,not nice they said it was due to the infection, soon as antibiotics kicked in ,went back to normal. But luckily didn't have to stop in hospital, still bit windy day six,feeling much better.

      This came out of the blue ,bit scary every time I think about eating.

      Yes time to sort lifestyle changes.
