Re: totally discouraged

If you do have recurring diverticular problems after surgery, I would get a new gastro doctor!!
And, ifit is true get a surgeon that does laproscopic surgery. Also,take more soluble fiber in your diet -like psyllium seed husk powder.

I use the psyllium powder from the Vitamin Shoppe that is mixed with water.
It will bulk up your stool and help to clean your colon out with BMs.

I wish you well---Harry
