thank you for your query.

diverticulitis is a common digestive disease which involves the formation of pouches (diverticula) within the bowel wall. typically occurs within the large intestine, or colon,Diverticulitis results when one of these pouches becomes inflamed.

the main symptoms will be-
left lower quadrant pain, fever, and leukocytosis,vomitting ,diarrhoea

to treat diverticulitis,we need a bi-pronged approach.

i would suggest you to take low fiber diet for a while. low-fiber diet gives the colon adequate time to heal without needing to be overworked

also continue your anti-biotics,this will fight the infection.

take lots of fluids and maintain proper meal times.

thank you,
you can get back to me for any further queries
