Moderately Severe Diverticulosis
I have had small bouts of diverticulitis since 2000...2 to 3 a year. Blood started accompanying the attacks in 2005, but none have been so severe that I've been hospitalized. The last attack, and worst, lasted 6-8 weeks. It took 8 different antibiotics to kill the infection. Yesterday, I had my 3rd colonoscopy since 2005. Results showed moderately severe diverticulosis. In the previous scans, only mild diverticulosis was revealed. When to it come a point when you say enough is enough and have surgery? BTW, my brother died in 1991 from gastrointestional hemorrage.
