I was recently told that I have diverticulitis but will not be able the see my dr. for 2 weeks. I think it has something to do with the colon. Can someone give me a clue as to what to expect as far as treatment/recovery? I have been taking antibotics & pain meds. for about a month. I also have a VERY visible knot at my navel. I still suffer with pain in my lower left abdomen. I am a 47 year old female.
