I was diagnosed yesterday with diverticulits. I have had lower abdominal pain for many months. I would have cramping about once a month. Thought it might be ovary. It wasn't. Recently the pain was becoming more frequent. It started to wrap itself around to my upper back, lower than ribs. I also had stomach issues, chills, slight fever, and general unwell feeling. I am on two antibiotics. Cipro and Flagyl. Clear liquid diet yesterday, and today. Progressing to regular liquids tomorrow. Anyone else here who has had this problem please respond, as I have a few question's.
