Spent 21 days in the hospital with Diverticulitis, most of the time on pain killers, and 24 hour antibiotic drips in Feb-Mar 2013. Blood would fill the toilet bowl. I thought I was going to die. I still have the pain on the lower left hand side, but its much better now than having my entire large intestines inflamed. I can't understand how it could have hit me as hard as it did, I eat veggies all the time, I make meals with veggies, always have. Thought it was the popcorn, but they are saying no, new research. I use laxatives to help me if I feel I need to clear things out. Can't take the chance of having it come back. The pain went down the front of my legs!! I have never had pain like that in my life. It could have saved my life, my colon was checked and they found a growth which didn't look pretty. It was removed. Still a little scared about it coming back, don't like hospitals.
Hi I am having a lot of trouble with my stomach and colon. I had a hernia operation about 26 years ago. At first it was okay but later on I started to have problems again. At the moment I am taking homeopathic vitamins and minerals with cultures. How long can I take them. It is helping with my digestive system, but I still get pain in my anus althought it havent been bleeding since I started with that treatment. What foods can I eat and what must I avoid.
I recently found out what the problem was and that I have diverticulitis the pain is in the back left side and front left side of stomach it feels like gas that can't come out you feel like you have to go to the bathroom when you get to the bathroom the pain stays in your back your body begins to get hot all over like you're on fire but you feel cold in the front you'll get chills fever nausea sometimes you will have to throw up while your on the toilet, now I'm on this website looking for help! Iwould be.interested to hear more stories and solutions, last time, i really thought i would die on the bathroom floor. This is the first time i've had blood in my stool,
My story: First bout of diverticulitis 2005 resulted in perforation & partial colon resection. On high fiber diet & stool softener since. Started taking daily Probiotic one year ago using 3 different brands. Second bout occured last week despite these efforts. Disappointed in Probiotics for divertic's. I am normal weight & eat healthy low-fat low-sodium whole grains etc.
Suspected Listeriosis from recalled chopped red onions last May.Had all the symptoms,fever, stomach pain like I had been kicked,other symptoms,stiff neck, yukky, but no spinal fluid taken to be sure.Mild, took 10 days...All I could tolerate was coleslaw with vinegar (not creamy) and vinegar was what i really craved.Think my body was telling me something
Jennifer...I experienced severe pain due to diverticulitis last fall and ended up in the hospital after three days and three doctors misdiagnosing. While there they found other gastrointestinal issues that needed attention. Whatever you are experiencing, go see a gastrointerologist (?) ASAP. Prayers to you for successful treatment.
