@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?

Mostly painful cramping and diarrhea if I eat any of the things I used to be able to eat on a regular basis: lots of fruits, vegetables, spicey things. That is simply gone from my life. I can only eat a few very bland veggies, same with fruit. So I try to include fiber like barley, quinoa. Frustrating. Difficult to balance as from time to time I get it wrong and have unexpected and unpredictable bouts.
