5 days ago I had a bloody bowl movement. The next day I had another bloody bowel movement. So I went to my doctor, and he just told me sometimes that happens and it will go away. I told him that it might be diverticulitis and that I need antibiotics. Gee prescribed them for me and I ve been taking them since Tuesday. I m unable to have a bowl movement, (three days now). except for an occasional little hard nugget. I m bloated and in pain.
