Hi folks. I’m new here and actually here on behalf of my partner. Last week he was diagnosed with infected diverticulitis. The pain started almost two weeks ago and he was diagnosed 10 days ago. He was given antibiotics in hospital but they affected his kidneys so he was given antibiotics for that too. He’s been home for a week now. On his discharge he was told to rest for two weeks and told the pain will take at least two weeks to start to go.
Anyway, he’s still in agony. He’s not feeling as poorly but still in s lot if pain, especially after eating and after going to the toilet.
We weren’t given very much info on this condition, except if he doesn’t rest he could perforate his bowel.
Please could anyone give me any tips on how to deal with the pain, anything at all... foods to eat, avoid, any supliments to take, any advice would be really appreciated. He’s 32 years old and pretty much eats or will try anything.
