Q

Do I need a colonoscopy for diverticulitis?

Do you still need a colonoscopy if you are not planning on doing the laser surgery for diverticulitis?

It is routine to do a colonoscopy a few weeks after a bout of diverticulitis. It is necessary if you have never had one before. You should discuss this with your gastroenterologist.
