Hi all, does anyone know if awful fatigue is part of diverticulitis?

    Yes, I think its due to fluids for 2 to 3 days and then slowly eating bland food. But mostly because your in so much pain your scared to eat and your body is exhausted .

    Absolutely.  My advice is to be nice to yourself and take time to rest with fun drinks such as Zero drinks, Gatorade, herbal tea, so that you can recover.  Once I moved to a liquid diet which was basically bone broth for a few days and then slowly began adding low residue foods (white rice, white bread, applesauce, highly cooked green beans and carrots, boiled chicken) literally one new food each day, I began to gain strength and feel less fatigued.

    Ask your doc if you can have protein drinks.  They come in clear liquid form, shake form, powder form, capsules etc, comes in 20 different ways, forms, ALL can be liquid.  100 flavors. OR make your own... with a nutribullet😀

    Protein gives you energy!!!!!!

    Yes,as per the other replies, and if you're taking medication that also contributes to the fatigue, during and for a few weeks afterwards.

    I don’t want to scare anyone. I just want to share what happened to me during the 3rd flair up. I was in tremendous pain in the morning and I went to see the acupuncturist to help me to relax for one hour. After the acupuncture I got out of the building and fainted on the street. A stranger call the ambulance and I end up in the ER. They check everything and I am so lucky that I didn’t brake anything. The ER doctors said, I had no oxygen in my body.

    Please try to eat more nutritious food but has to be over cooked. I was so afraid to eat anything that I had no energy to walk and fainted. I still eat very carefully, 2 weeks later. Puréed boiled food but different boiled soups every day. I over cooked 1 to 2 small pieces of chicken with mushrooms and blend  them or I over cooked piece of chicken with carrots and salary and blend them, I purchase beef bone broth and make chicken broth. We need proteins daily.
