The findings on colonoscopy
are significant. I think you meant to
say "Diverticulosis" and not "Diveticulitis" which means presence
of infection or inflammation of one or more of these pockets or
pouches . If you have had attacks of diverticulitis
in the past
it is possible that your colon lining get thicker from healing and scarring.
Presence of Internal Hemorrhoids
can also problem with expelling stool.
The more you try to strain to have a bowel movement , the sphincter
muscle can tighten up more. As much as possible , try to go to the
bathroom at the same time every morning whether you have the urge
or not and try to relax and let it happen natural. I am really glad that
your diet does consist of plenty of fiber and adequate fluid intake.
One of the things that may co-exist with diverticulosis is IBS or
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
. This can cause spasms. If you discuss this
with your doctor, small doses of antispasmodic medications may be
helpful. They need prescription.
Also, I would recommend that you start taking some probiotics,
such as plain yogurt containing Lactobacillus
Wish you good health.
