Pain in lower & upper abdomen & tenderness in upper left abdomen woke me up. I have had CT scan & colonoscopy that point to diverticulitis.
I have had this (3) times before but always in lower left abdomen and always with blood. Cipro & Flagyl cleared this up.
But this time I have taken Cipro twice, Flagyl twice, Avelox and still have same problem areas. No blood at any time during this recent episode.
Less pain when I am standing or lying down.
Doctor wants to remove (6) inches of upper right colon but should I get another opinion because this bout is so different from before??
