Hi Tommy,
I have had all your problems with pain and diverticulitis.It is realy unknown why diverticlar happens but it is believed by some doctors to be related to stress.As you may know diverticula forms when you get constipated and eating a low fiber diet makes the problem worse as well as a poor diet and smoking.


And as I have said so many times on this board === You need to take a water soluble fiber and you don't have alot of choices. I take Psyllium seed husk in a powder form mixed with water daily and it not only regulates your bowels it cleans out the pouchlike areas called diverticlar and the folds in your colon. Psyllium is in Metamucil ,Konsyl, Equate from Wal Mart and sold in capsule form. There are all sort of fiber in food but all fiber is not the same some are not water soluble like whole wheat products, nuts,bananas and even green beans and there are many things that contain alot of water-soluble fiber like oat meal,apple,pears,other fruit, broccoli, beans (navy,lima,soy-others) and lentils.There is no fiber in meat or dairy products. Taking a water soluble fiber daily is a simple-healthy safe thing to do. I assure you it will change your life.
God Bless---Harry
