Teresa, thank you for the response. I have been told, however, that I do not have diverticulitis. I have diverticulosis in the sigmoid colon, and I have a tortuous colon. I believe there is a difference in approach to management of diverticulitis vs. diverticulosis.

@virginia44 After I gave my initial response, I found an article from the NIH website that you might find interesting, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5635100/.

My diverticulosis is also of the sigmoid colon (this is quite common). Yes, diverticulitis is when the diverticula become inflamed and infection and pain results.

What types of symptoms do you have?
