Rushed in to hospital last tuesday ive been sent home to follow a low residue diet. Does any body know if I can follow the NHS milk diet with this condition. Ive been doing a sponsored slim this year for pancreatic cancer research and I still have two stone to shift in two months. I had just stared following the milk diet when I was rushed into hospital. To be fair at the moment im slightly terrified to eat.

    I have dairy with no issues. I refrain from nuts and seeds as well as any spicy foods.

    Can you tell me a little more about the milk diet?

      4 pints of semi skimmed milk per day, sugar free jelly, 1 drink of bovril/oxo per day, 1 litre of water per day. Tea/coffee with milk from your allowance sweetners permitted. You must take a good multi vit and mineral tablet. Its a diet used to shrink the liver pre bariatric/gallstones/stomach surgery.

      Just seems strange that I started this lost 9lb and was rushed to hospital with high up cramps. Kidney stones were suspected but ct scan showed diverticulitis.
