So happy to find this group.
Had 3 attacks last year. Augmentin & low fiber diet slowly took care of the first 2. No fever just abdominal and lower back pain.
3rdattack came 3 weeks after 2ndone. Augmentin & low fiber diet and blood work. No infection. Still had some pain 2 weeks later but CT scan showed nothing.
This round started 6 days ago. Pretty severe abdominal and lower back pain. Started Augmentin & low fiber 5 days ago. After reading some posts here I also started probiotics and colace. Didn’t seem to be getting better so I started a clear liquid diet yesterday. (Probably should have started on day 1)
Feeling better today. Still some pain but not as severe. Now some questions if I may. (Finally)
When I stop the clear diet in 2 days & if there is still some pain do I start introducing fiber? I remember lingering pain for a while last time.
How much fiber do you introduce? 2 grams & bump it up 2 grams a day?
Not a big eater so I would like to start using Metamucil. Have been eating a couple fiber gummies a day before attack.
I refer to these painful episodes as attacks but I never get a fever so I’m not sure if there is any infection. Can you get pain with no infection?
