back pain & yellow stool

About a month ago I had a cat scan and was told I had mild to moderate diverticulitis in sigmoid colon with mild hepatomegaly and likely hepatic steatosis. No evidence for bowel perforation, obstruction abcess (abscess) or other pericolonic inflammation. I took cipro 500mg 2 times a day and flagyl 500mg 4 x a day. I ate clear liquids 2 days, soft foods for 2 days and slowly tried to add more fiber. It is now almost 4 weeks later and I am still eating bland chicken and potatoes. I have added canned peas and carrots, french green beans, canned peaches and some watermelon. The last 2 days I have gotten cramping and diarrhea with a yellow tint. The pain is left side back at the bottom of my ribs and lasts about a few hours after the bowel movement.  the cramping happened at the same time yesterday and today. Is there something I should be doing different food wise ?  I feel like my whole colon is bloated from under my left breast to my groin. I appreciate any input. Thank you.
