We don't have the: power to change your mind. We don't know what your medical history is or what your tests showed. I feel no need to try to prove anything to you. However, if your surgeon diagnosed you with diverticulosis & has photos from your colonoscopy you could ask to be shown these with explanation of what is being seen.
