Ok had a diverticulitis attack over weekend. Never had one before but had colonospy in February, 2 small polyps removed and slight diverticulosis diagnosed. Mother has diverticulosis and has had attacks. Should I expect this to be standard now that I had an attack? I am 59. On liquid diet, cipro and flagel, how long does it take for me to be better. And what can I do to prevent this again?
