Re: Diverticulosis help?
I suffered with diverticulitis for years, and I never found anything to help with a flare-up short of antibiotics. You want to get a flare up under control. I did avoid popcorn/nuts, but would flare-up at random times anyway--usually 3-5 times a year. I eventually had a foot of my colon removed, and have not had a flare up since. There are alot of people here who have resections due to this condition, and they were extremely helpful to me when I was facing it.
Diverticulitis does not go away on its own.
Avoiding constipation is very important. That is something I struggled with alot. I seem to have that under control now too. Too bad I didn't control that a few years ago like I am now, and maybe I wouldn't have messed my colon up so much.
Any questions, I would be happy to try to answer. This is a problem that was very painful, and I remember vividly all the struggles I had with it.
I am almost a year post surgery! It was the best decision I ever made concerning this problem
