I was diagnosed with Diverticulitus in June 2019 , I was in hospital for 4 days, had intravenous antibiotic and pain control. I had another flare in July 2019 in hospital again with same treatment. I started on a liquid diet, then low fibre diet. I keep a food and pain control diary I am eating little and often. my menu consists of Rice Krispies and Banana, yogurt for mid morning ,canned fruit or egg for lunch, yogurt in afternoon, boiled white Rice, egg or Toast for dinner. i have not had any alcohol since being diagnosed. I am still in constant pain left lower stomach , my pain control is 60mg codeine, 2 paracetemols 4 hourly, 5 - 10ml Oromorph as a top up. I am on a waiting list for Colonoscopy, and Specialist appointment. I am unable to work because of the pain and side effects of meds. HELP.
