Hello!

What is your age? How long have you had the swelling and discomfort?

Diverticulitis is most common to affect the lower left area of the abdoman. This may cause soreness and may at times cause nausea. Swelling of the area is possible. If that then it needs to be treated with a course of antibiotics.

Other causes are possible. I will await further details from you and we may discuss these further...

I hoipe that this is helpful for you. If my answers are helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback. Thank You and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
