I am a 70 year old female with ibs c diagnosed around 7 years ago, diverticular disease found after a colonoscopy earlier in 2017 and am now awaiting a abdominal scan and upper endoscopy as the consultant thinks I might have a motility disorder lazy stomach he called it. I have been suffering bloating back pain( all over back)slight burping and indigestion but no heartburn.I also suffer from anxiety and have had lots of stress during the last few months, which of course may be contributing to the pain etc. Life is pretty miserable for both me and my husband. Both of my daughters think I should be taking tablets for the anxiety, I am not keen. My question is after looking at the diet for slow stomach emptying which seems to be low fibre I am concerned because the diverticular needs a higher fibre. Is there anyone who is dealing with a diet for both conditions. I dread getting constipation a gain.I take a fibre supplement but have read it is not advised for gastroparesis. I realise I have not been diagnosed yet but just trying to prepare if that is my diagnosis. Thanks.
