i was told 4 years ago that i had diverticular disease after having suffered for 4-5 years with what i thought was IBS .. always planning trips round toilets only using large super stores that had toilets on site . and worst was not being able to walk far ie 100yards with out extreme bowel pain .2 years ago i had a bowel resection to take out
the diseased bowel ..the symtoms are now worse and am being told I have IBS some times going 8-10 times a day . other times not for 2-3 days still have extreme pain when walking so have got a electric scooter so can at least get out and about with family find that not walking stops the need for toilet breaks ..
just glad I found this site so can try to sort as my doctor just keeps giving pills out .
