Hi-I was in the ER Tuesday for several hours with
severe lower right stomach pain, nausea, low-grade fever & diarhea. I thought it was my appendix
. They did blood tests, urin
e tests and a CT scan. Doc said it was not my appendix
, but he thought it was diverticulitis. Doc gave me some meds, including antibiotics, and sent me home with
no further instructions (I'm a veteran, so I was at a VA hospital). The meds made me sicker. I'm still having the lower right side pain.
