Best of luck buddy.  I hope they figure it out soon.

I thought kidney stones were later in life, until I skied with a friend last week. He said he had two of them in his mid 30s.   :bolt:

Hoping for the best for ya. Just got over colitis the other month. Takes at least 2 months to get over it and the meds are extremely expensive. Almost $500 for antibiotics for it. (90 day supply cost me $10 through tricare for life)

Thank you all for your prayers and best wishes!

What I know so far is not appendicitis.

CT with constrast showed more than the CT without.

With contrast the GI Dr believes itís slightly less than acute bout of diverticulitis.

The surgery team scared the hell out of me when they were reporting on the CT w/o contrast saying looks like a tumor or cancer or possibly severe diverticulitis. Had a surgeon there who wanted to cut. As you might imagine sent my anxiety through the roof.

Thankfully the GI Dr said the area is really inflamed and he strongly discouraged a course of action of colonoscopy, biopsy and potential resection until the area heals, infection goes away and the bowel has recovered much more. I personally know someone who had surgery and resection during acute diverticulitis - lead to perforation, septicemia and he died  :(   

Dr leans strongly towards diverticulitis as my colonoscopy in June showed areas of diverticula and nothing more. 

Glad most of us are men around here and most mind donít discussing exrecrement/evacuation issues  :rofl 

Most Women embarrassed about it...

Again thank you all!

Lol that reminds me when I had my kidney stones since it was very early when the doc tried to imagine me he stated that "I was full of faeces " and he could not see anything.

The wife thought that was hilarious and agreed with him

Diverticulitis is painful as well and is dangerous if it becomes serious
