My dad had diverticulitis--he nearly died twice when his colon ruptured...but he had his entire large bowel removed and he's good as new...with a cool scar and no belly button--my kids think that's hilarious.

It is widely noted that Kurt Cobain suffered from diverticulitis, and it is said it was one of the reasons he got into using Heroin. According to him, it helped ease the pain. A lot of good that did.

I think you are thinking of scoliosis, not diverticulitis.

Unless his diverticulitis is complicated by an abscess or a fistula, he should improve with antibiotics and bowel rest. He could be back training soon in that case. However, if he has a complicated course and requires surgery, he will have a colostomy bag attached to his abdomen to collect draining stool. If that were the case, he couldn't fight. If he gets a colostomy, it could get reversed down the road, but would put him out of action for many months to years.

I don't know why he would go to Mayo Clinic. We all know that the best medical care is socialized medical care. He should hop the next plane to Canada, Cuba or Great Britain.

With my father's first surgery, they removed a section of his colon, and he had a colostomy for about 6 weeks while it healed. Now he had his whole large intestine removed and doesn't have a colostomy...it has made things "different" for him (TMI, so I won't go into detail) but no colostomy, so he was happy about that.

No, I am talking about diverticulitis. He was never officially diagnosed but a lot of people around him have stated after the fact that they believed it was diverticulitis. He did have scoliosis as a kid but they could never pinpoint that as the cause of his chronic stomach pain.
