7 MONTHS POST REVERSAL-IS IT STOMACH FLU OR RELAPSE????

Hi, I'm almost new here and have a question.  I had my colonostomy reversal in December and have been fine. THEN this past Thursday, I thought I had a case of the stomach flu, I had typical symptoms,  after eating,  making frequent visits the bathroom.  When the need to visit the bathroom was gone, I was fine, no pain, I felt great, shopped, got my hair touched up, etc.  Then again the emergency visits to that cute little room.

With this in mind, I've limited my caloric intake quite a bit, and even so, I still have that same problem.  The difference is that my output is not as much but I still feel  pressure.  Its almost a similar experience I had prior to my diagnosis of diverticulitis.  My bm's are quite similar to 14 months ago.

Now its Sunday and I'm scared, I don't think its the stomach flu anymore.  I need to visit my doctor tomorrow since I'm flying out of town on Sunday.  I haven't traveled by air in years due to embarassment so I'm really looking forward to my trip.

My Wound Care nurse told me sometimes this happens, it's almost like a relapse into diverticulosis/diverticulitis.  Has anyone else experienced this???   I'm desperate for information and don't know where else to look.
