extrem Constipation then loose bowels

About a month ago I had an extreme case of painful constipation that caused red blood in my stool. It required hospitalization. I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis that appears to been caused by the extreme constipation. After I left the hospital I was put on antibiotics. My stools since I left the hospital are not fully formed and I have to relieve myself 4 or 5 times a day. I am having difficulty retaining my bowels.It has been 20 days of this. I am going for a colonoscopy at the end of the month.

My concern is about if these loose bowel movement are a permanent  situation?
