Just got out of hospital after my first Diverticular attack in sigmoid colon.For perhaps a week before,i was producing way too much acid in tummy, and im wondering whether that caused my bowel to contract.Then the bloating started, so i tried a couple of laxatives.Bad move,the next day it was emergency dept.
So now im attempting to work out a diet.So far, the only thing i can tell would be ok is cabbage and porridge LOL.Im assuming fast foods,fatty foods,seeded fruits and veges are bad.
Chicken? Pasta?Spicy foods?Curries?
Sorry if this sounds abit disjointed but im a bit freaked out .
Does this disease stop people from working and travelling?I mean, I cant work remote locations knowing this may flare up, similarly, should I defer vacations to Thailand because they wouldnt know how to deal with it in their hospitals, as they dont have the disease there..
I have a wish to just get it over and done with, and get a bowel resection.Bad idea?
Is there any links to dietary advice?
Once again, sorry for the panicky approach , as life proves what a bitch it can be.Any advice on how to psychologically approach this with respect to attitude.?
