first time with diverticulitis
I was recently diagnosed with div, after coming into my doc with lowgrade fever and mild pain in lower abdomen. He put me on two antibiotics - told me to eat a mild diet - I ended up dropping one antibiltic (side effects) - It is the sixth day since the beginning of the attack - I have loose stools (also narrow), and just some tinglings in my gut - I had been eating tst, applesauce, pbutter(no nuts), cereal in morning, one time tried chicken and baked potato (no skin). I am thinking, after surfing on the net, that I should probably stick to a liguid diet to get my gut well, even though the doc said it didn't matter. HELP - I have to teach next week and then leave for a trip in two weeks. I NEED TO GET WELL with no pain and no loose stools.
