I have been having bowel problems for a while now. In the last two months I have been having left lower back pain and it brought my attention to my grastrointestinal health. I have had 2 MRIs done for the lumbar spine and cervical spine, an x-ray of the hips and pelvis (ok), an x-ray of my abdomen (ok). Today I got the results from my abdominal/pelvis ct scan. Basically everything was fine excep he noted mild diverticular disease on the sigmoid colon (no diverticulitis). I have been having change in bowel movement shape (kind of flat), a little bit of constipation and at times diarreah. The doctor ordered a high fiber diet, no milk, no fatty foods. Could the mild diverticulosis caused the change in shape of the bowels? The doctor did not go over this detail. The gastrointestinal tract in the abdomen was unremarkable. The liver, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, adrenals, and kidneys were fine. No evidence of hernia or significant lymphadenophy in the pelvis or in the abdomen. No evidence of acute oseus abnormality was identified. No evidence of free fluid or air in the pelvis. No ductal dilatation of the gallbladder. No pericardial or pleural effusion seen. Do you think I can sleep peacefully knowing that My digestive system is ok except for the mild diverticular disease or should I in your opinion do any other tests? I am 34 years old, no colon cancer in the family...My grandfather did have diverticulitis. Sorry about all the space taken by the info. Thanks a million. I have ahd two of the most stressfull months of my life. I just need some peace.
