I began to experience mild colon distress in late May 2017. As the symptoms began and did not go away, I made an appointment with my Primary Care Physician who was on vacation so I was seen by an associate. The doctor assumed it was diverticulitis since I had history of one bout in the last century. They ordered an xray to look for blockage of the intestine and prescribed antibiotics.
The conditions worsened daily to the point I was spending all the morning hours in the toilet. I could not leave the house until my system was completely empty. The last two weeks of June I could not even make it to church.
