HI there. I had what my GP thinks was a bout of diverticulitis about 6 weeks ago - lots of pain in left hand side, also in back, bleeding after BMs etc. he said he doesn't think it's cancer because I haven't experienced any sudden weight loss, and it's not my ovaries because I had a total hysterectomy. He said he was 99% certain it was diverticulitis, and gave me augmentin (though luckily I didn't have a fever). But because of the bleeding he sent me for an urgent colonoscopy. When I got there I was told they couldn't do it because it would be dangerous if it was within 6 weeks of a flare. So they booked me in for the end of January.
?My concern is that I keep getting pain again, which subsides if I go back onto clear fluids for a day or so. I'm in moderate pain now, but no fever. Do any of you have any advice please? Should I try to see my GP tomorrow to get more antibiotics or should I just go back onto clear fluids till it passes? And do I need to postpone my colonoscopy again?
Thank you - so glad to have found this group
