#auguts hard to talk about
I am a 69 year old female. I have just been diagnosed with diverticulitis. I am shocked as for over the last 40 years I have eaten a very healthy diet, loads of fruit and vegetables. I drink maybe once a month and I don’t smoke. My only vice is a cup of milky coffee a day. I very rarely eat processed food. Yet 3 weeks ago I was doubled up in pain with diverticulitis. I am now on a course of antibiotics and awaiting a colonoscopy. I am wondering why when I have a regular bowel movement twice a day. I have never been constipated, how have I got this debilitating illness?
