I was diagnosed in Jan w diverticulitis. Cipro & Flagyl round. It returned with vengeance 6 weeks later as peritonitis. IV antibiotics in hospital 5 days ...flagyl & cipro again. Dr said I must undergo colon surgery to remove. After research I am willing b'cause I don't want antibiotic resistance. Question is how do I stay clear of inflammation/infection to get ready for surgery in 4 weeks?
