Patient Comments: Diverticulitis (Diverticulosis) - Attack Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your diverticula attack?

Comment from: 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: January 03

I have been experiencing pain below my left rib cage for the last 7 months. I had a colonoscopy done and diagnosed with diverticulitis. Other symptoms were severe abdominal pain moving to left pelvic and legs and sometimes shifting to right side. Primary care physician has prescribed Flagyl and Cipro. Starting to feel better and notice bowels and urine not having bad odor. A couple of bouts during the last week have almost prompted me to go to emergency room. Ultrasound is indicating no problems.
