Help for Diverticilitis

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am 71 and was diagnosed with Diverticilitis just over a year ago.  So far I have kept really well, only a few flare ups.  Right now I am in so much pain, feeling nausies and light headed and pouring with sweat. 

I was told to stop eating white bread which I have and bought brown bread two days ago.   Although I really enjoyed it, it has seeds on it and I can only think that this has made me I'll.  any advice would be appreciated.

it is making me feel really low.(and sorry for my self). Lol

      Hi Linda, how are you doing ? good I hope  I have just repeated your post to Eleanor, because I didn't scroll down the replies 

      I went on a bit about H&Bs probiotic capsules, but since I started with them, I haven't had a twinge since 28th August.The bread situation is

      good, cravings for a sarnie are saved by the thins. x

      Hi Sam where U been ?

      Thins are a scrummy very thin chocolate covered squashy mint,

      OR, they are a like a very thin,square of soft bread in a pack of six ready sliced ,and D.D pouches seem to like them.

      Suppose you don't have 'em where you are. Mind you, in saying that,

      you probably didn't kmow they existed.

      are you O.K.???

      Recommended by the gastric man himself, not particularly the capsules.

      but he was all for probiotics. Easier than buying the yoghurts, you don't

      have to watch the sell by , and there is a 100 in a jar I buy when they are on offer.

      Hey... I have been to the beach and have been flare free for 4 months. I have felt a twinge coming on a few times but will cut back on eating and drink my fiber and pop my probiotics and doctoring myself just fine. I am really amazed at how well I am doing because before I was getting sick every 2 weeks. As for the thins I have never heard of them. Are they white bread..wheat or rye?

      How come you got flu being on the beach every day .?

      This wicked witch would wave her majic wand causing waves of acute pain in lots of intestines. She thought that to conjure up some pippy ideas and produce nuts and suchlike she could magically bring about a lovely inflamation.------ come on Jacqueline!! Lets get going!

      Ha  Ha HA Lovely idea Vera, hope every joins in.

      The crafty baggage had a trump card (oops, unintentional)

      she was invisible,and leapt out to cause destruction and mayhem whenever her demands for destructive foods were ignored.and sent people on a nightmare journeys to the bathroom, day or night,she didn't

      care, as long as it was seemingly never ending  (What a nasty little basket she was ) and  she had hundreds of relatives,who kept in 

      touch with each other to make sure they were all doing their worst

      th their host  .----------------------next
