Just checking in to tell everyone that finally the pain has stopped. So it has either been the passage of time or perhaps the heaps of probiotics I've started to take, or maybe the higher fiber diet I'm on, but either way I'm so relieved to just feel normal in the left lower quadrant again.
For reference I'm 39 years old. I'm 4 months out from the initial symptoms starting up, 3 months out from finishing up the antibiotics and now 1 month post colonoscopy (which thankfully only confirmed I had diverticulosis and also that scar tissue that had formed in the area of the abscess). I had a sigmoid abscess of just over 2 cm that was treated at home with antibiotics only.
So for those who had complicated diverticulitis - the pain can last for months, try not to be scared. But now I'm ok and I'm so grateful. Any questions please ask and I will do my best to answer.
