Not diverticulitis?: Colonic diverticulosis are permanent outpouchings of the colon lining. Diverticular complications include: inflammation (diverticulitis), abscess, bleeding, fistulas, perforation, etc. Your symptoms as described are more likely not diverticular in origin, but anything's possible.
