I'd just be interested in others opinions on the cause of diverticulosis. I've always cooked from scratch, rarely eat what is termed as junk food and I love fruit and veg, so it was a shock not only to find I have this, but that it's severe, scarred and narrowed the bowel. I have had an inflamed gallbladder on and off for about ten years, but scans show I have no stones. Never had bottom left pain which is odd as that's the site with diverticuli, but do have pain top right which is where the gall bladder sits. Of course now I have pain all over the colon. They say it's caused by low fibre diet, but is it really because I've always had plenty of fibre in the foods I've eaten. Anyone out there got their own theories? Is it attached to having an inflammed gallbladder bladder, or does stress cause it? What do you think?
