Question Diverticulitis and ongoing back pain

Hello to all - four weeks ago I was hospitalized for a week with an attack of diverticulitis. It was actually the third time I had suffered the pain, but the previous two times (both within the last six months) I sort of muddled through, and was already taking antibiotics for something unrelated.

I actually thought it was the antibiotics giving me the pain and diarrhea A few days before I was admitted into hospital, I had gone to my GP with a very tender and painful belly, and backache - he thought it may have been renal colic, as I also have haematuria - also ongoing for the last three months - am awaiting a cystoscopy for that, kidney scan was clear.

Unfortunately for me, I am also 7 months out from an abdominal hysterectomy, so I tried not to take much notice of all the symptoms, thinking it was somehow related to that. I had a feeling that the tender belly and blood in urine was hyster related, obviously not.

My main problem is severe lower back pain. And I mean severe - I am taking Ultram (Tramadol) regularly - it eases off and the returns till I take another tablet I still have tenderness in my lower abdomen, and am just waiting for the agony, I feel it is a matter of time.

I am interested to know if long term blood in urine, and especially the backache might be related to the diverticulitis, or should I be worrying about possibly something else?

Re: Diverticulitis and ongoing back pain

Has anyone here had ongoing back pain with diverticulitis? And/or blood in urine? Went to see my GP this morning, who feels it may be connected to my bladder and not bowels, but I'm not convinced...I have asked for stronger painkillers, and am now taking 100mgs Tramadol three times a day with Difene suppository for pain, don't yet know how that will do me .

I do know that frequently people with diverticulitis will also develop an infection in a surrounding organ like the bladder. Sometimes they will even attach and sometimes even eventually share contents.. of course at that point it is an emergency. I'm thinking maybe some x rays, a ct scan or barium enema could help pinpoint what is going on in there!
