Hi, I am new here and so excited to find this forum. I have had diverticulitus for about 6 years with flares 2-3 times a year. My GP doesn't think I need a resection but just for the quality of life and threads that I have read here I am beginning to believe I do. I hate the medication of Flagyl and Cipro .
Just a few questions . First of all surgeons. Any have suggestions for Doc in ANn Arbor at U of M.
Second I have had two knee replacements and am diabetic, anyone else ? wondering how you healed?

When I have a flare not only do I have the right lower quadrent pain but also pain with urination. Im thinking perhaps a lesion OH BOY!
Thanks

Hi There
well you might want to take your questions to Advice for After Colon Resection topic
I am also diabetic and the healing was just a little bit slower then a non diabetic
what would also cause your healing to be a little slower is low platelets that can be seen on a CBC test I hope you have a good Dr. and he will do good things for you it is worth the operation to get rid of the pain so again read the Advice for After Colon Resection
part of this forum

God bless and may he hold your hand on your endeavors P.S. are you male or female >?<
I am Male and I have the burning when I pee it is caused my a high level of uric acid in my blood and the Dr. gave me some pills for it and it is a lot better now

I can't answer your questions but I wanted to say welcome to the forum. I've found this place recently as well. There is a wealth of info to be had here!
Cipro & Flagyl is terrible stuff. I've completed 2 rounds of it. I read here, to take the meds with lemon or lime Gatorade. I tried it with round 2 and it made a big difference during the course of treatment.
I am a female and I have internal pain (feels like it's up in my colon) when I urinate or have a BM. So bad that I really don't want to make any bathroom visits. I'll look into this treatment for uric acid but really don't want to add any more pills to the mix!

Kell that was not a question I suggested a group on this forum for you to look into
I have been in here since Aug 2011 you started a new group and I hope that your Doctor can help you out on the road to recovery

Larry, this is Kell, the above poster. I'm not sure I was signed in when I wrote the above post.
I don't understand your response to me. I was trying to offer a bit of friendly advice to a fellow sufferer.
The written words on a forum can be so difficult to comprehend sometimes, and I don't always get it!

Sorry for the confusion it is just that there was a new posting made and there is a lot of forums here that answer the questions better then I can. Try reading advice after colon resection

Have a good day and God Bless
