Colonoscopy

Had a colonoscopy August of 2017, it now being June 2018 with diverticula diagnosis and polyps removed. Problem that I’m having every since the procedure , I awake every morning having pains in my lower intestine more to the the left side . Could something have gone wrong ? I went to the ER at VA hospital were the procedure was done . Cat scan was completed and was told all appeared okay. What could be the cause.

So, could the diverticulitis be happening again?  Did you amp up your fiber when it was found in 2017?  While often it has no symptoms, it can cause abdominal pain such as you describe.
