Question Diverticulitis history but something else?

Hi all. I was diagnosed with diver approx. one year ago after I ended up in ER for abscess on my colon. I spent 5 days in the hospital on Antibiotics, and finally went home. Fast forward to the past two weeks, I have felt horrible, pain in the side, severe bloating, loss of appetite. Thursday went to doc and he ordered Ct Scan, with barium contrast, also on Thursday he ordered me to take 1500 mg on Flagyl daily, and 2000 of Cephalexin. Today I go to follow up and he says no flare up. CT Scan was good. My husband asked "Well, why does she feel like this?". His response was that maybe I upset the worm. Excuse me? This worm must be pretty upset because I feel awful. Any ideas on what else could be going on in there? I went from looking zero to 6 months pregnant in a week! He also said to stay in antibiotics for the next 14 days, which was odd to me. Any suggestions or input would be appreciated. Thank you.
