Is it Diverticulitis or IBS?

By a gastroenterologist? My general surgeon for gallbladder suggested colonoscopy (with a Dr. he knows). He specializes in hernia and ruled that out.
My long-time internist also suggests colonoscopy.

Usually you meet with the gastroenterologist and he/she decides what test you need. If your surgeon referred you to one he knows that is just fine. If you have a general practitioner or family doctor they may be able to take care of it. Usually diverticulitis is treated with two antibiotics. It is basically an infection in a diverticula… pocket in the colon. It should be taken care of soon as possible being it is an infection.
