Re: Will a Dr. do a scheduled colonoscomy if you are having a bout of diverticulitis?
Thanks for the reply, Maggie. I did call my dr.'s office and was advised to mostly do a liquid diet and soft food, if any, for a few days. If things don't clear up, they will call me in antibiotics. My pain in my low left side is a little better, but the bad bouts of diahrea after eating are gone..since I am barely eating.
As for the second colon resection, I won't know until they do the colonoscopy. My first surgery was done by a different dr. The dr I see now told me about ten years ago that my first surgery was not done the way he would have done it and that this would haunt me one day. I do have more diverticuli... I as well have a septated cystic mass in my pelvic region and hopefully it can be removed with the same surgery. I have had a complete hysterectomy and the gyn says it's not his area but it definitely needs to come out. Guess I will just have to wait til the 24th. Isn't the waiting the worst part???? Joyce
