I have been diagnised with"Acute divertaticulitis in the past week. I have had a colonoscopy. I am ok for a couple of days and then like yesterday and today I have a flare up and a sore stomach and pain when I walk. My Consultant did not tell me what to expect. Just that it could flare up in a few months or tighten itself up. He also said that Surgeons preferred to operate on bowel cancer than diverticular disease. Has anyone else been diagosed with Acute. I thought it would all settle down for at least a month or so. I take Movecol but have stopped because of loose bowel anyway. I was ok Mon to Thursday but yesterday discomfort started and I had a really bad night. Stomach and back sore this morning. Any advice appreciated.
