diverticulitus bleeding

I have had rectal bleeding every couple of days for 2 weeks. I bleed once or twice then it quits for a day or2. The first day I had 10 bleeds. It is like I had an enema with blood. The drs say it is diverticulitus but cant find where the bleeding comes from. They want to take out my colon and hook the small bowel to the rectum. Has anyone had this or know of bleeding from there. When they do a colonoscopy they say they see a pouch with a clot and shoot water to dislodge the clot but it doesn't bleed. Seems like if the clot is dislodged it would bleed. I don't want to have my colon removed then bleed again. Any ideas?

Re: diverticulitus bleeding

Let me get this straight . . . your only history of intestinal problems is two weeks of bleeding and they are recommending removing your colon? Are you going to a specialist (a gastroenterologist)? Something sounds funny here. I would get a second opinion.
