Hi, last fall my mother had a colonoscopy because he was suffering from stomach cramping. After the colonoscopy, she was told she was struggling with diverticulosis. Since this, she has been dealing with what sounds like diverticulitis, which she says is life-threatening. The research that I have done online, does not seem to confirm that. She also says that she was told to change her diet, but she has always had a very health diet. Is this condition life threatening? What can she done to recover from this?

I had a colonoscopy 4 years ago and everything was ok. Some pockets on my colon, but otherwise healthy. I have been constipated off and on for a year, tons of gas, and thin movements . I take a bowel softner, but I still have problems. Should I try some special fiber, or see my doctor about a possible bowel obstructionl.

Less than a year ago I started to experience loose stools/diarrhea. It starts out with a normal bowel movement, but at the end it would be soft that I would be wiping myself most of the day. Now it has come down to having 4-5 movements a day, which are very soft and rope like and am constantly wiping myself. Within the past year, I have been through 2 Colonsoscopy s, A Sigmoidoscopy, Upper Endoscopy and Exploratory Surgery where they have removed my appendix. With all of this done, they say everything came back normal. They have ruled out Colitis, Crohn s Disease and Diverticulitis. It seems every time I eat, I have to go to the bathroom, not right away, but an hour or two later. Sometimes I just have the urge. I have also experienced a lower right side pain that comes and goes with this. They have told me that it s probably an inflamed muscle. I am at my wits end with this problem as I cannot go very far from home. If I don t eat anything, then of course I am fine. When I eat my acid reflux flares up so bad, that it feels like there is something heavy on my throat. I am on Omerprazole for the reflux. Could I possibly have something wrong with my Digestive System? Please help me.
