Re: diverticulitis with bladder infection
When I had the colonoscopy they found 3 polyps, and probably 6 or 6 pockets, my polyps were benign, she wants me to have another one in 3 years, since I have colon cancer in my family. But it was interesting, she let me see the pics she took of the inside of my colon and it makes me aware of whats in there.....I am old, over 65, but last year was the first time I had any idea I had pockets.
One thing I was scared to have the colonoscopy, especially the prep before hand, but it turned out to be nothing for me.
I also take Questran (actually the generic, can't spell it) to absorb bile, after my gallbladder surgery, 20 years ago, I had diareaha really bad and that took care of it, but I have cut that back alot.
I do believe that the colon presses on the bladder and keeps it from emptying as well as it should...most days I try to eat 2 or 3 fruits, banana, apple and lately canned apricots, Just a couple halves...hope I helped you.
