I was having a lot of abdomen tenderness for the past 3 years and finally was diagnosed with Diverticulosis 2 weeks ago after getting a CT Scan.. was in pain then..over the course of the next week it became increasingly difficult to sit down normally..I'm usually sitting over on my left hip or my right. the pain in my lower abdomen was like a horrific bout of menstral cramps (which I don't get, had a hyst 6 yrs ago). Went to Dr again and he confirmed it had progressed to diverticulitis. Was put on 2 types of antibiotics, Metronidazole and Sandoz Ciprofloxacin last thursday. Nothing has changed. Still getting bouts of pain that feel like knives and bm is all over the place. Thing is he told me to eat only ruffage and lots of fibre this week no meat at all. If I need to bulk it up because it's so free flowing shouldn't I lower the fiber? I don't eat a lot of red meat anyway (goes right through me and I pay for it hours and hours later). I cut my intake down almost 3/4. I've researched this a lot and find different websites are giving me contradictory information..eat nuts and seeds....don't eat nuts and seeds.. etc. Can someone who's been living with this please give me the real ins and outs on the type of food I should be eating pre, during and post flare up.
