Sorry to hear about your health issues. I also ended up in the hospital in April with a flare up. (Mine was the last part of the month.) But i can relate all to well to your frustrations. I have a question for you. Have you ever had part of the colon removed because of the diverticulitis? I am scheduled for surgery in June. I was curious because if you have and are still having flare ups, how much is the surgery really going to help? Or how long before I have to have another surgery? I know each person's case is different, but I was just curious what you have experienced.

April was not my month. First part of the month saw me being hospitalized for a diverticulitis flare-up. Didn't eat anything that I shouldn't have for once, it just ran me over all the same. The cipro didn't take the infection out quickly enough so I got stuck in the hospital on IV antibiotics. Doctor is talking about surgery now.
A week after getting out I started having chest pain. Back to the hospital. Not a heart attack and not my pacemaker malfunctioning. Whatever it is doesn't seem to be something that's killing me quickly. So I'm pressing ahead with my exercise program again.
After nearly a month of no exercise my weight has gone up five pounds and my legs have lost some of their conditioning. This sucks.
Oh, yes, and I just did my taxes and I owe $6000.00 that I don't have because of this stupid economy.
