Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your symptoms are classical with diverticulitis attacks.
Diverticulitis is the inflammation of the colon lining pouches at the sigmoid colon since you had pain on left lower side.
Diet plays a vital role --seeds, nuts may not be well tolerated during an attack.
It seems your symptoms were due to the moderate diverticulitis since it is improving.
Udeally, we suggest antibiotic course with soft diet for a week.
This helps intestine to recover gradually.
Diagnosis can be confirmed by a colonoscopy.
I will suggest you to see your GP for the antibiotics course ( ciprofloxacin and Metronidazole)
also tylenol ( paracetamol) may help with the temperature but it is better to treat the infection with antibiotics.
ok --still these symptoms should not be neglected
Diet wise, try to stay on soft diet --only cooked vegetables, fruits, well cooked lean meat, rice, pasta, lentils.
avoid any seeds, nuts, cabbage or gas producing food.
augmentin is not ideal for diverticulitis but probably did help to some extent.
that is reassuring
you can wait and watch on the diet.
you can take a probiotic daily
that is due to the infection you have in the intestine.
once it subsides, your temperature will subside also
that is also connected
i will still suggest you to see your GP at some point if these symptoms come back again.
ok I see
get well soon
