Sorry to throw that last "D" word in my Title line but please, I need some more advice or comments from those who have had diverticulitis:
Before I was diagnosed (but apparently was experiencing diverticulitis), I had been eating solid foods and had regular bowel movements.
Then after the doc did diagnose me with the disease; I was put on a clear liquid diet. Presumably, because I had, had solids; I still had a couple of regular bowel movements.while on the this liquid diet.
My question is, and maybe this is a naive question (I kinda hope it is); is it common to now have diarrhea since I'm only consuming clear liquids?
Side note: after almost 72 hours of just the clear liquid diet, I became very fatigued and worried I might be creating other issues because I know my caloric intake was extremely low....I could only drink so much broth or apple, grape or cranberry juice, as well as water. So I did eat a banana, chewed it to mush and ate it. Then a little later a protein shake. Both of those greatly helped to restore some energy. But otherwise, still no solids.
Is the diarrhea normal at this stage of five diet/ condition?
Most grateful for any responses
