I was diagnosed with diverticulitis a week ago at the ER when I was having excruciating abdominal pain. I was put on Cipro, Flagl, zofran and Vicodin. Since then I have dropped the Zofran and Vicodin and I was having some very dizzy spells so dr stopped Cipro and Flagl and replaced with Augmentin.
This is all new to me. I am still having a small amount of abdominal pain, and a moderate amount of back pain.
So let me get this right.... I have diverticulitis if the pouches on my colon are infected. If not, I have diverticulosis?
And I am on a high fiber diet. What does that mean? I eat bran cereal in the morning and I have a granola bar for a snack and try to eat an apple with peel and/or a banana a day. Is that enough? But I eat dinner with no regards to fiber. Should I get something like Benefiber to put on my dinner?
I am getting confused! And frustrated!
