I had a bladder sling in 2009 since then I believe things have gotten worse lower back pain sever loewer abdominal pain and sharp pain on right side while trying to urinate . I've been to drs had scans and the thing they did see was diverticulitis and I was given antibiotics , but as I told them I have trouble having bowel movements some times I strain and notice blood mixed in stool. Though no blood just pouring out. Also to urinate I feel a full bladder and it sometimes feels like its not coming out or I have to adjust my self to get it flowing but they say no urinary infection I feel as if I'm going crazy!! I've had to have full historectomy gallbladder removed just months after and my apendix was robed when I was 20 I was31 when I had my hysterectomy 32 gallbladder and almost 36 for bladder sling . Please so u have any answers or info keep in mind I am diabetic but it has been undercontroll on sliding scale insulin. I'm tired of going to er just to hear they can't find anything and I don't know if not explaining it right or just not telling wut I so know . But it's getting expensive especially not having insurance.

There can be a number of reasons for lower abdominal pain amongst these are earler operations in the area and adhesions which would not show in and x-rays. However,if you see blood in the stool and CT- scans show diverticulitis, you should have a colonoscopy done to rule out polyps or other colon pathology , which could cause your symptoms.
