It is June 2012 and I just read your story! Oh my gosh, I am so sorry you had to go through so much.My husband was diagnosied with Diverticulitis about three weeks ago. He was given and anitbiotic by injection, then ten days of oral antibiotics. He is doing better now but still very tired and weak. He has lost about 13 pounds or so. Since this is our first episode with this illness we don't know a lot of what to expect. Such as: How long does it take to recover from a bout of this? The doctor said the CT scan showed there was no abcess so that's good, just the infection I guess. Also, we have such conflicting advise about what he can and cannot eat. Any help you can give would be great. Thanks!
How are you now? I hope 100% better.
If you have time, I would love to hear from you and your advice on a colon resection surgery. Also, were all the surgeries done at the Mayo Clinic?
