Oh So sorry to hear this Ripata. Here is some info:http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/diverti...rticulitis.htmlNow just so you know, you could have both IBS AND Diverticulosis simultaneously. So just be aware of that as you seek another opinion. It is so hard when you cannot count on a Dr to be on top of things and I hope your new one is much better at that for you.I truly hope you feel better real soon.

What country are you in?To me this sounds like a medical malpractice lawsuit.Are you saying you took medicine for a condition that did not exist?And they delayed treatment for your diverticulitis because no one got backto you? If that is the case, I would sue everyone involved.

The last time I "listened" to my doctor was about a year ago when he told me to take valium. An unopened pack is still sitting in the cupboard. The main thing, Ripata is that you have hopefully found an answer to managing the pain. Diverticulitis can arise from a low fibre diet, or constipating/straining?Jackmat
