I have that also and a redundant colon witch is just that my colon is very extra long, I won't be having the colonoscopy again because they can't get through that part because it loops real bad, I am one of those all the time constipated have been most of my life, when you have diverticulitis you just can't eat thing like nuts popcorn and such things that would stick in the pouches, Some times I wish i could do something because being constipated all the time you do not feel good at all, I tried that Zelnorm and it didn't work for me, The Dr told me when the diveviclar get infected you take antibotics, My father died from colon cancer so I have alway's worried about that. Hope he's ok, I am sure he will be. My sister was told she had colon cancer just this last year and what had prompted her to go is that she was constipated and all it was 1 small polyp, so they removed it, It's just a good thing he went and it will be ok. Good luck !!! I will keep him in my thoughts.
