For the last few months now I have been having problems with my bowels, and it is not diarhoea or consipation that is bothering me.

I seem to be too regular emptying my bowels and can go up to 8 times in one day. I also have terrible pains when I need to go.

I am due to see my rheumatologist in a couple of days time and am not sure whether I should mention it to him.

Oh, I did have a Colonsocopy a couple of weeks ago to screen for bowel cancer as it is in the family. I do have mild diverticulitis.

Many thanks
Celia :unsure:

Well you mention it is diverticulitis it sounds like that is what is making you go. Talk with you gastro and let them know what is going on now. I have ulcerative Colitis and I can go like that too.
