I'm also new here, and was diagnosed with diverticulitis at the ER on saturday. I was having terrible cramps all day friday, felt exactly like labor contractions. The first doctor at the hospital was just going to send me home with orders to get some Fleet enema, but another doctor caught it and had me to a full work up. After 7 hours, bloodwork, urinalysis, ultrasound and CT scan, they confirmed diverticulitis and sent me home with 2 antibiotics and some pain meds.
Of course, as with any condition requiring diet adherence, they didn't tell me anything. My primary care dr told me no seeds and nuts, but that's it. I'm feeling better now, so am working on high fiber, low fat, no seeds/nuts, and plenty of water (not easy for me).
I'm so glad to have found this group!
