No, it can not flare up diverticulitis. Better to consult doctor and start proton pump inhibitor. You are mostly having gastritis. Please hit thanks.

Dr. Muhammed Aslam MD

Hello dear,welcome to HCM forum. During surgery,diverticulum is removed as such.Since diverticulum is a congenital anomaly,once removed,it will not come back. Hope you got cleared.Thank you.

Dr. Rakesh Sharma MD

Drink lot of water. If not relieved, get urine tested for infection.
