New diverticulitis patient

I have had diverticulitis several times with nasty pain on my left side. Last two months have been on antibiotics for 28 days. Still have ache, sharp pain at times, on left side and now on right. Pain comes and goes. I have also continued to lose weight. After I eat, the food seems to sit right under my bra line and causes bloating and hardness in my stomach. Nauseous several times a day. Now I’m trying to eat small amounts several times a day. Some days my entire colon aches and burns. I might also add that I have had digestive and colon issues my entire life. I will be 65 in December.

Yes, my entire colon hurt the last time. Diverticulitis did not enter my mind because it started lower and then spread throughout my belly. Sharp, knifelike pains. I still have tenderness when my stomach get very gassy. I try to avoid gas producing foods. If I eat takeout sometimes there is more onion or garlic or smoke than I can handle. The time before it might be fine... different cooks. My other conditions are esophageal and stomach. I have had issues most of my life... starting out as a baby with formulas. I still don't do well with milk or soy products. I am 68.
