Re: Twisted Colon

I also have a twisted colon but it doesn't cause much of a problem if I keep my diet high in fiber and take Metamucil every night.
I have Diverticulosis which is painless unless food becomes impacted and infected and causes Diverticulitis which is always very painful and may result in needing surgery. Diverticulosis means there are pouches or pockets in the intestine where food may become caught and cause infection. When that happens it's called Diverticulitis.
