In brief: Diverticulitis
Get a cat scan to prove it.
Colonic diverticulosis ( tiny balloons protruding out of the colonic wall ) are famous! in the sigmoid and left sided colon. Clear liquids for a day or two and a 10 day course of Levaquin (levofloxacin) will do the trick. If the ct scan is negative, have a colonoscopy.
