I had mri it showed diverculitis and left side colon wall relatively collapsed. Now need colonoscopy. What does this all mean? Thanks . It just seems so fast


Hi and welcome @dianew, I am sorry that you have this worry but hopefully someone will be along with some experience of this. A colonoscopy is gold standard for finding out what is going on in the colon so your team is being very thorough and taking good care of you.

Just so you know and to avoid confusion and duplication, I have deleted your other post. Everyone can see all posts so it won’t affect your response. Please take care and stay in touch, Kim :x::x:
