Diverticulitis Cause Pain Colectomy
Is it possible for diverticulitis to cause pain on the right side if i've already had a partial colectomy?
I had a partial sigmoid colectomy ten months ago, diverticulitis symptoms gone. Still have chronic llq pain. Lifting left leg causes pain.
I had a sigmoid colectomy in Aug 2015 for recurrent diverticulitis--completely unremarkable surgery and recovery...except, I keep losing weight! I?
What do you suggest if my husband had a partial colectomy a month ago due to diverticulits..but now he is having internal hemmorhoids?

Again his surgeon should be notified and evaluate your husband ...Read more
My husband had a partial colectomy a month ago due to diverticulits..but now he is having internal hemmorhoids. Could these be related?
Could this be adhesions and what can be done to stop the pain? Painful 2 year old incision after colectomy. Ct scan and upper and lower GI show no problems besides diverticulosis.
No.: Diverticuli are small, typically pea-sized pockets that are very common in western societies, likely related to our high red meat, low fiber diets. The presence of these pockets is called diverticulosis and is very, very common, and may cause bleeding. Diverticulitis is inflammation of the colon brought about by rupture of one of these pockets; it generally does not cause bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: It was once thought that such things could lodge in existing colonic diverticuli or block their openings, resulting in inflammation and infection. There is no real evidence of it. Some doctors still recommend avoiding such foods, but it probably makes no difference. (Personal story: I had divertiulitis 35 yr ago, another episode 2 yr ago, no others -- and I eat these things in large amounts.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Question my husband drinks 4 24oz everyday and he was dignose with Diverticulitis a year ago would that have caused it even though he eats well ?
No direct connection: There is no direct connection between alcohol consumption and diverticulitis. But a heavy drinker is probably not on a well balanced diet that includes lots of fiber(fruit and vegetables and nuts) which may prevent diverticulitis. Drinking 96 ounces of beer daily is very unhealthy and may lead to liver disease if not already present.SEE http://bit.ly/1JtlW00 http://bit.ly/1OiIRcI ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
