I now have some diverticulitis, so I am on antibiotics and a low residue diet for it. I was taking 2 protonix a day for the burning in my chest and throat and now I am back down to 1 a day. Seems to have worked, at least this far it has. I just get a little now and then, but not enough to complain about
. The doctor wanted to do a colonoscopy because I run (and I do mean run) to the bathroom many times a day, but with the diverticulitis flare-up I can't. We are supposed to go on vacation for the last week in Feb. and the first week in March, and I hope I will be up for it. Certainly can use some warm weather without snow.
Why do an ultra sound if it usually doesn't show anything??? It never showed on me either.
The only way they could tell was to do a MRCP, which is non-invasive. Of course when they found the stones I had to have the ERCP anyway. I guess my whole digestive system is messed up. Hope you have good results with your tests.
Chat with you soon.
