Hubby had his internal pictures taken and there is nothing sinister lurking where it shouldn’t.
They called me in to collect him and discuss their findings, then he was allowed home.
He has diverticulosis, which is exactly what the doctor in A&E said it was, and now we know for sure, we can DO SOMETHING!
Seems this is quite common in people over 40 and can affect 2 out of 3 people.
We may have to modify Hubby’s diet a little, but I have some literature from Guts UK provided by the British Society of Gastroenterology so can read up on that and any suggestions. I have been keeping a food diary for both of us for the past few months, so I can see where things need to be tweaked if necessary. Of course there is always the internet for back up!
At least it’s not my cooking, which takes me back a bit. We hadn’t been married very long when he ended up in hospital and I told the doc that t wasn’t my cooking, honest.
He looked me straight in the eye and said actually, it was! I was shocked (and I thought Hubby liked mushrooms LOL).
Seems I tried to convert Hubby to a healthier diet too quickly and his stomach couldn’t handle fresh fruit and veg when it was used to burgers and chips.
It is a huge relief, and tomorrow sees the triple CT scans to rule out other things.
I feel we are finally making progress and so glad we changed doctors surgeries when we did.
