Hi newly diagnosed with diverticulitis,  spent 4 days in hospital...trying to decide to have elective laprscopic surgery.  Seems the right thing to do?  Had a micro perforation

    Hello and welcome @rwool thanks for joining the community and sharing a bit about yourself :) 

    I hope your stay in hospital went okay, have you spoken to your GP or anyone there about the surgery? It's always advisable to speak to a medical professional if you do have any concerns. 

    Is there anything in particular worrying you about it?
