diverticulitis and bladder pain

Hi Everyone,

Just had my results from my barium enema ( we wont even go there) and apparently I have diverticulitus, I have also had a blockage in my ureter (tube between your kidneys and your bladder)t since my tah and had a stent fitted into my ureter then later removed.

Problem is that my bowel specialist doesnt think that this is what is causing the constant abdo pain I gave had since my tah 9 months ago...... It feels like bad sun burn but in side ...has anyone have any ideas I feel like I dont know where to go next.. and maybe I should just shut up and get used to being in pain every day....

Any ideas would be great

diverticulitis and bladder pain

Hi (((sluggy))) are you sure your DR said you have diverticulitis? Or could it have been diverticulosis? Diverticulosis is a condition where pouches form in the walls of the colon (visible in a barium enema). Diverticulitis is when those pouches become infected and inflamed. Diverticulosis may be symptomless or just cause minor discomfort. Divertiulitis symptoms include very severe stabbing pains in the lower left abdomen, which are worst before a bowel movement and slightly improved afterwards, and cycling high fevers. Massive doses of antibiotics may be required to treat the infection, which can recur. I had most of my colon removed earlier this year because of recurring diverticulitis.

Is it possible that you have adhesions on your colon in the area where the diverticulae are, causing the pain? I had some on mine which never showed up in any tests but were found during the surgery... mine didn't cause me significant pain but I did feel a pulling sensation in that area. Other ladies who've had adhesions on the bowel have reported significant pain from them, particularly as the fecal mass passes through the area with the adhesions.

I'm assuming your DR has told you to avoid eating nuts and seeds to minimize the likelihood of diverticulitis? With proper caution, people with diverticulosis can live a normal life and never experience a diverticulitis attack.

I hope this helps, and that you find an answer to what is causing your pain.
