Re: Diverticulitis or not?
If you're still in pain I would definitely go back to your GP and try to get the CT test results. It is unfortunate that it takes so long to get in for colonoscopy but it is very important to have this done.
Please don't let this disease get out of hand, it can be a serious thing that can kill you and cause incredible pain and suffering! My DH had diverticulitis. He had attacks that he kept secret from me, he said he thought he had pulled stomach muscles. After awhile, the attacks got so bad that he ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks being treated for a perforated colon! After 3 months of rest and healing, he was able to have a colon resection as an elective surgery and he now eats very carefully, including limiting red meat, getting enough water, fiber and eating low fat. He was lucky to have the best surgeon in our city and the difference in his health after the surgery was unbelievable!
I hope you get some answers soon and feel better soon! Please let us know how you are doing and be persistant with the GI doctor!
