Thank you for the query.
As diverticles are caused by chronic constipation
, you should do everything to avoid them. Otherwise you will get another inflammation of diveticles what can result in intestine perforation. Moreover, recurring diverticulitis
should be treated with affected part of large intestine removal.
To avoid constipation you should increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake. Stool softeners can be used in case of constipation. You should also increase physical activity what will stimulate intestines for proper work.
If you diverticulitis were diagnosed only with an ultrasound
, you should have colonoscopy
performed in about 3 weeks after acute inflammation healing.
Hope this will help.
