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.

Hi there, my name is Rowe and I am from Australia , I found some fantastic very informative information from a website in the USA "listen to your gut" Jini Patel.

Hi everyone,I am wondering about the ribbon-like stools you get during an acute attack of diverticulitis. Do they persist after the acute attack is over? Obviously diverticulitis makes your colon narrow. Does it stay that way after the attack passes? I'm worried I will never be able to have a normal BM again, and that it will hurt whenever I try.Thank you!

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
