Until I can get into see Specialist how am I suppose to eat? Should I resort to all liquid diet??? I read that a lot of fiber makes this worse. I am not going to the bathroom with some help. (Ie: stool softener) that is never predictable though. I realize I am going to need a colonoscopy. That I will do after my daughters wedding next weekend. Again, how do I live until then? My last colonoscopy was 5 years ago. Then he told me I had diverticulitis. I am 63, female, 120 pounds. Thank you!
