After several visits to GP and hospital finally diagnosed after colonoscopy, diverticulae throughout whole colon with narrowing and tortuisity. The pain I'm getting is lower abdominal cramps pretty constant and at times really bad, I seem to get relief from the pain by laying down but can't do that all the time.
Yes showed some gynae probs a small fibroid, polyps and a retroverted uterus, also high level of estrogen maybe due to taking HRT . Polyps will be removed in June. Apart from that all normal, blood count was 14.7 which I'm told is good.
Yes grateful for any advice. My GP just wants to up the painkillers but I don't want to be in a permanent "fog" , can't believe this has been going on for 5mths I just want to get back to something of a normal life again.
thanks very much I do have a lower back problem so that makes sense! Good advice, thank you
