teskandar's Journal, 29 January 2013

What a day! Woke up with abdominal pain @5am. Thought it was gas or bad Chinese. By 11am was getting a little scared. Pain was terrible & abdomen tender. Called my Doc and managed to get in within the hour. Was so glad as I hate urgent care. :P He gave me a diagnosis of diverticulitis and sent me for a CT scan to confirm. OMG that stuff they make you drink!!! It took hours of waiting around and I was hurting so bad. :( Then the iodine IV leaked all over my arm and head! It dried like super glue. The scan confirmed it was diverticulitis so now I am on 2 antibotics and percoset. Oh, and a clear liquid diet for three days then a low fiber diet for a few more days. That's if I don't get worse and have to get IV antibotics at hospital. >:( So that's the scoop. See you in la la land. (this painkiller is crazy). xoxo

My sister suffers from this and finally figured out she had attacks after visiting her daughter and son in law who are vegetarians eating high fiber diets especially lots of nuts. Once she figured it out, the attacks stopped. Hope you are feeling better soon.
