Just got my date for a Colonoscopy. Not looking forward to it but am hoping for some answers. I have had all the symptoms of diverticulits now for ove a month and no answers yet. When I looked back I have had attacks before but put it down to a bug. I have no appetite until late afternoon/evening and have lost 7 kilo. I needed to lose weight but as others have said- not like this. We cancelled our Overseas trip and I got very depressed. I have been to emergency twice and now they are giving me an appointment to see the Colon.. team. I want definite answers as I got so depressed and the pain has been awful. At least the second time I went to the hospital they have booked me into Outpatients so maybe there will be an answer from it.I really hope so!
