I am a 41 year old woman whowas hospitalized for diverticulitis about 3 months ago. After
antibiotics, bowel rest and iv fluids, it went away. I am going to have a colonoscopy this summer as a follow up. Since then, I have had three different episodes of discomfort and the feeling that I need to have a bowel movement, but can't...or having many, many small bowel movements for a 24 hour period. I have never had this problem before.
