Re: My large bowel has stopped working
Sue, didn't they give you any instruction on what you could do?? Diverticulitis is a bit tricky, some people have to have that cut out of the colon.
I have a slow to non working colon. I use a tea and take a daily fiber to get it moving. The tea can be found in the grocery stores here where I live. You have to figure out what you cannot eat also. For me it's yellow cheese that does a number on me. I also do my own enema's with a quart of water to 1/4 cup lemon juice. At least it gives me some relief fast. The tea's work over night, I found smooth move tea from traditional medicinal works good. Hope this helps, I feel for you. Diana
