In brief: Re-evaluate

He needs an immediate re-evaluation for possible complications of diverticulitis including abscess formation and colon obstruction.
Will likely require ct scan and readmission to the hospital for antibiotics. Don't delay.

In brief: Go back

Pain, bleeding, infection-abscess and obstruction can be serious problems with diverticulitis.
Needs to be rechecked and perhaps scanned or scoped.
