    After taking Fluorourcil for a precancer on my face (only for 3 days) I developed shingles and now I believe diverticulitis. I am a 63 year old female who is beyond frustrated and horrified by this! Typically I avoid all medication, I should never have taken this drug! Regretful!!!

    I've gained 30 lbs in approximately 8 months. Haven't changed anything in my life except now I've been diagnosed with diverticulosis. It is unknown at this time how severe and will need a colonoscopy for further investigations. Has anyone else gained weight due to this or did I just get unlucky with a slowed metabolism at the same time?

    I started taking Crestor about 15 years ago at 5mg once a day. I started having diverticulitis flare ups. 2 years ago increased to 10mg Crestor once a day. I now 4 flare ups in 6 months that is way to many flare ups. How do I find out if it has anything to do with taking no Crestor!

    Help! My headache is so severe. I checked into Kaiser and then ER for diverticulitis. My CAT scan showed no abscesses or perforations just diverticulitis. I am on a 10 day course of Cipro and Flagyl all but it’s day five and this headache won’t go away and I just can’t tolerate it anymore. I’m hoping it’s safe to stop my antibiotic treatment because I’m going to!

    I have Stage 3-4 cancer B cell Non Hodgkins lymphoma non aggressive borderline aggressive. I have had many treatments with Rituxib. My last scan showed 5-7 new growths and a few doubled in size. It also showed some heart disease, lung issues and calcium in my breast. Also in the last week I was in the ER for diverticulitis/colitis. I am concerned about the progression of the disease. Does this mean that I have added the aggressive to my disease.
