Is it Diverticulitis or IBS?

Thank you for your response! I have been calling all morning to get appt. for Colonoscopy in a large medical group I go to in NY. So far, everyone is booked. Will keep trying. Tried to go directly to Memorial Sloan Kettering – but they seem to want to know if I have been diagnosed with cancer. Certainly hope not – but some symptoms seem to possibly suggest that.

You do not need a colonoscopy for diagnosis of diverticulitis. Sometimes just a physical exam and other times a ct scan.
