Welcome to Healing Well... we have a couple of people on the IBS forum that suffer from Diverticulosis (including me :) however none of us I believe have had to go the surgery route yet. You might get some more luck in the ostomie forum (if you click the drop down button above where it says Forum Quick Jump, you should be directed there). Please talk about
your IBS symptoms with us though. You may find that a few might identify with your symptoms and may be able to give you some tips on how they control their symptoms.
