I have been on antibiotic since June 2018 every other week for my diverticulotis . I notice if Im not on them my stomach is bad. Is surgery the only answer to remove part of the colon? They said its a hard surgery to recover from and I dont want to chance of having a colostomy. Anybody else in this situation? .
