Does anyone know what diverticulitis is?

This is a problem in the wall of the bowel/intestine.Generally seen as a common digestive disease. Diverticula are small pouches that develop in the intestinal wall.  If these become inflamed then diverticulitis is the result.

Diverticulitis is an infection of the large intestine (Colon). Bulges form throughout the Colon, thought to occur by the pressure of hard stools (poos) passin through over the years. When bacteria accumulate in these bulges they cause infection and unpleasant symptoms such as abscesses.
