I'm interested as to whether any of you has been able to successfully handle flares simply by dietary changes (liquid diet, followed by soft, then slowly working back to normal). The usual antibiotic regimen (at least here in the states) of Flagyl and Cipro make me so ill that I'd rather have the diverticulitis symptoms. Seriously, I felt like I wanted to die last time I tried this and wound up not completing the courses.
Two questions, in particular:
- How long did it take for the symptoms to completely disappear?
- How slowly did you work back into your normal diet; that is, how many weeks (months) was it till you were eating as you were before the flare.
