In February I had a severe diverticulitis attack (my first one age 39). I was hospitalised on IV anti-biotics and then 2 x 10 day doses at home. Has taken me until around a month ago to completely recover mentally and physically.
Feel like I am starting another attack. However I would prefer not to go back on antibiotics if possible as have been taking lots of pre/probiotics to increase natural gut flora. Am going on to a liquid diet for a few days, as this is what is recommended on all websites I have read, however I wondered has anyone got an experience of avoiding flare ups in this way or have you always needed anti-biotics?
I would much rather avoid if possible, but on the other hand don't want to put off taking them only to find the infection gets much worse and I end up being hospitalized, or on them for a longer period than if I just take them now? Any advice welcome!
