It can be from your diverticulosis if this is in the abdomen.

If in the groin, more likely it is hip pain referring to groin, or hernia.

If it is on bone, something else.

You need an exam to narrow these possibilities down at this point.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Such pain can be experienced with chronic diverticulitis.

Given your history, that is more likely.

You should follow a high fiber diet.

A colonoscopy should be considered.

Next possibility can be a nerve compression related symptom at the lower spine.

That can be checked by the lumbar spine scans.
Best wishes,
