Hi all. New to this site and have been reading stories for the past 2 hours.
I was diagnosed with diverticulitis 2 weeks ago which resulted in a 4 day stay in hospital as I had an abscess.
Fortunately IV antibiotics worked and I was sent home a week ago advised to have low fibre diet and then gradually move to high fibre.
I started adding fibre on Sunday, and today I have had 6 BM and my abdomen has become tender.
Not sure if i should go back to hospital as I was told if it reoccurred to do so, but the pain is nowhere near what it was last time.
Could this be for adding fibre too soon?
