Question blood/stool-need advice

Let me begin by saying that in November I became ill suddenly in the middle of the night. After several days of constantly going to the bathroom with diarrhia and throwing up continuously I went to urgent care where I was diagnosed has having diverticulitis. The dr. put me on two antibiotics and I eventually felt better but some things have not been the same. My bum always feels painful plus I always see streaks of blood on my stools and blood in the toilet bowl. I just figured that I got hemmorhoids from all the diarrhia and that they would eventually go away. Now I am getting frightened because of the blood. Plus I have tried hemmorhoid creams and other creams and nothing helps at all. I know I should go to see a dr. and this is where your advice would be helpful. I know this sounds stupid but what kind of doctor should I go to and how do you prepare for an appointment for something like this?!!!!!! Thanks for your advice!!!!
