Me too and the best ones I've found are the organic, unsulfured ones at Costco - not sure if you're near one or not but they're worth looking for if you are!

After my colostomy reversal, my doctor prescribed a stool softener and told me never to allow myself to get constipated. I took the stool softener for a long time, but I don't know if he meant forever, or just until my bowel healed where they stitched it back together. I have Colace on hand at all times and do take it if I need it, but I do not eat VLC so constipation is not usually a problem for me.

My surgeon never mentioned a stool softener at all to me. He did say to avoid constipation. My PCP told me to keep Milk of Magnesia on hand and if I felt like I was becoming constipated, to take "a slug" of it at night!

So far, eating the dried apricots and drinking plenty of water have kept things in the right direction. I love the apricots so I'm pretty happy with this solution. I also love prunes so if need be I can switch up.

The dried fruit is not really part of a low carb diet plan, which is my preferred eating style, BUT it is working and it is not causing me other problems from a hunger standpoint so I'm gonna keep at it.

Last night, for the first time since my hospitalization, I had some refried beans and some nice soft butter lettuce and some taco sauce on a tostada. It tasted great and I have had no bad effects so far from it! Feels good to be getting some of my old favorites back into my menu plans.

Just want to say too, thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread. It really helps me to know I'm not alone in this - in fact, just about everyone I've talked to IRL about this either has had an experience with it or knows someone close who has. I guess it's pretty common.

Although not usually part of a low carb plan, the apricots have a lot of good nutrition, and it's not as though you are eating baked goods or sweets. If your body is handling them well, go for it!

Glad to hear you are doing so much better!

I have added in a few things that wouldn't typically be on a LC menu, like the baked potatoes with butter and Greek yogurt. They were particularly comforting during my recovery and they still taste great to me and have not seemed to affect me negatively.

Being in maintenance for what seems like eons now, I have adjusted my foods slightly so that things like those 'taters and apricots are not a large part of my diet, but seem to be doing well for me at this point, and I think adding some "soft" fiber to my diet while I ease back into something closer to LC.

Thankfully eating meats and fats has not been a problem either. I even had that bit of butter lettuce and refried beans on my tostada the other night and am happy to report that everything there seemed to settle in nicely as well!

Tonight, bone-in ribeye steak grilled over oak and fresh rosemary sprigs, and half an avocado with mayo, unless I get my butt in gear and cook the big artichoke I bought in which case I'll ditch the avocado tonight in favor of half an artichoke with mayo!

As long as you aren't eating the apricots with fat,it seems they are okay.

Nope. I have a glass of water with my morning probiotic, then about 4 of the apricots, then nothing til lunch. Another 2 or 3 mid-afternoon. Seems to be working fine!

Personal question..Dried apricots treated with sulfides make me kind of gassy..Is there a brand that they make without the sulfides?

The ones I got at Costco were unsulfured, organic, and according to the package, "Unmessed with!" LOL!

They're brown instead of the orange we expect, because of no sulphur, but they are really good. In fact I'm gonna buy another bag today when I go to Costco. Hopefully they still have them!

Next time, I'm in KCity, I'll go with my Dd. Maybe they have them online.

HA, brilliant - and they do have them! I just looked. It's a 3-pack for $52.99 which sounds expensive but I think they're two pound bags - so less than paying $9.99/lb or more at the grocery store. AND no sulfur!

I ordered some from Amazon. One reviewer said she ate 11 of them and experienced lots of distress.

I can imagine! I mean, it's like eating 11 fresh apricots - why would you do that?

Well, they do taste really good. Hope you enjoy them. Don't eat 11 though!

They take a little getting used to when you're accustomed to eating those other ones!

I opened a new package today - turns out, they're NOT the same brand as I originally got at Costco! Dang them. You never know what you're gonna get.

In any event, these are good too, but DH ate a couple and said he found them "bitter" - good - now he won't eat up my apricots, LOL!

OK, peeps who share the joy of diverticulitis with me - what are the "warning signals" you get before an attack??

I ate canned refried beans on Monday night which caused me to have bad bloating/gas around 10 pm - THAT made me feel like the diverticulitis might be fixin' to act up, I had a discomfort in the left side like somebody had the eraser end of a pencil stuck in my guts. Slept well, had BM yesterday morning, still had the discomfort. No fever, no elevated BP or pulse, no tenderness. Decided to "wait and see" instead of yanking out the antibiotics, and this morning feel a lot better. Still no fever or tenderness and that "poke in the guts" feeling is much abated.

So what are your "tells" on a pending attack? Curious what you all look for before deciding it's time to hit the antibiotics and/or doctor!

I had pain very very low on my left side, down in my groin. Mine diverticuli were at the lower end of my colon, right before my rectum. I just suffered through it...and that's why I ended up in the ER to have emergency surgery.

All's well that ends well, I guess. I'm fine now, but it's a warning to others not to ignore that pain. It was quite an ordeal, but I'm lucky my colostomy was reversible.

Yikes glad your ok PACarolsue, sorry you had to go through that.

Charski how are you now? Hope everything is ok. I am wondering, and sorry if I just didn't see it in this thread... but why apricots? I would have figured prunes. Is there a reason apricots over prunes?

I was diagnosed a couple months ago with diverticulosis. Back in February of this year I started getting horrible gut pain starting in my lower abdomen and radiating up to my upper chest. It was nearly unbearable. I was taking time off work for the pain and diarrhea that went with it.

I finally saw a gastroenterologist who performed a colonoscopy. He diagnosed me and told me to find my trigger foods. I really don't know WHERE TO START! I'm now on diclycolmine which is an anti-spasmodic. That allows me to get through the day without soiling my pants.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to avoid fiber or include it. My doctor isn't really much help, I'm afraid.

For those who have found relief through diet, where did you start? What foods did you eat first only to add others later? I have probiotics in the medicine cabinet, but haven't really taken them regularly.

I'd like to get off the dicyclomine, but going cold turkey is NOT advisable!

I think if you scour the internet you will find a lot of different information, and probably different things work for different people. I found some information that pertains to those going through the pain and discomfort of an attack. It says to switch to a liquid diet to get things under control and heal. When introducing food back into your diet, go with low fiber foods and then gradually switch to high fiber. I got this from the Mayo Clinic site, which is usually pretty reliable.

http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-li...t/art-20048499

Here's another site that lists fiber counts for individual foods.

My surgeon advised clear liquids if I felt that I was having an attack, along with starting on the Cipro and Flagyl - that I'd "know" when I needed it. Well, not sure THAT is true - I started feeling really badly after eating some refried beans from a can a couple weeks ago, very bloated, some pain, no tenderness though which was one of the markers he said to look for. Contacted my PCP and she said to wait on the antibiotics and this would be part of my "education" on what MY symptoms were gonna be like.

When I got discharged from the hospital by the surgeon, he basically said there WERE no food restrictions although he did not recommend pizza and beer that first night, LOL!

I stayed with easy foods those first few weeks. Mashed potatoes and gravy, eventually added in some browned ground beef; tuna mixed with mayo and eaten with Ritz crackers; applesauce; bananas; Greek yogurt; eggs, especially good to me were overeasy eggs with some toasted Italian bread - soft and easy to digest. He also told me to chew everything until there was nothing left to chew! I continue to do that to this day - I'm now almost three months out since my attack and surgery. But I can now eat steak, grilled chicken, I even ate pasta with homemade Italian "gravy" (marinara cooked with various meats in it) and some sliced hot Italian sausages the other night, without a problem.

Old wisdom was to avoid nuts and seeds, but surgeon and my PCP said that is not the current thinking. I am still avoiding them though and don't really miss them. Am adding in some spicy stuff - homemade refried beans or pinto beans (WHY those canned refrieds hit me so badly I do not know but I won't be trying them again!); baked potato with butter and Greek yogurt; ate quite a few cherries over a couple weeks while they were in their prime; I eat half a dozen or so dried unsulfured apricots daily, and plenty of water.

Some folks say they don't do well with corn. I haven't tried it yet. I've had a couple small salads and sauteed spinach and have even had a couple small bowls of Fiber One cereal with almond milk.

So, trial and error, but man I do NOT want to find what DOESN'T work for me - only stick with what DOES work! I'm surprised your gastro doc wasn't more helpful, highdesertrat! Hope you're feeling better. It's so miserable!!

Char, I was also surprised at how unhelpful the doctor was. Maybe I need to find a dietician to hold my hand for a few weeks into this. My one issue with finding what triggers an attack is the dicyclomine covers up many symptoms. I suppose I need to go off that and start from scratch. I'm not looking forward to it!

I dunno, my friend - I don't put a lot of stock into many dieticians - they're all about the low-fat mantra, for the most part.

I've not adjusted my fat intake at all and have been fine with that.

Sadly there isn't a "one size fits all" answer for this one, from what I'm garnering! Even my own doc, whose (doctor) husband suffers from this too, has basically said, you have to figure out what works for YOU.

I'm trying to avoid most packaged food items, other than frozen veggies and things with very few additives, and avoid the "bad" oils but then, I did those things anyway. I also think one very important thing is to NOT get constipated. What I read on one site, forget which one, is that straining to have a BM can be a big contributor to those pockets blowing out. I'm convinced that's what started my whole mess so now I eat those apricots and drink plenty of water and take a high-quality magnesium supplement twice a day. Fingers crossed, so far, so good!

Char, I'm realizing that's exactly what I need to do (figure it out on my own). Carol posted a link to the Mayo Clinic and I ended up printing out that list of foods....thanks for the link, Carol! Seeing that I'll be living in a hotel for the next two weeks, I'm going to have to get very creative with meals. I'm trying to low carb, keeping it under 100 grams per day, and that can be challenging on a diverticulosis diet! Fortunately, I like canned green beans and potatoes. I might ditch the low carb idea until I can get my gut back into shaper.

Do any of you take supplements just to get your nutrients in?

They really don't know the cause. Any doctor who suggests otherwise is not to be believed.

There is no specific diet; it is not about needing to eat more fiber, etc. Triggers are very different for different people.

I have not needed surgery. My attacks last about 24 hours and I'd need another day to recover because I'd be exhausted from feeling like I was going to die while having the attack.

It was pretty easy to look back and identify the foods that were triggers. I only had two - raw almonds and raw, shredded coconut. I no longer eat either and no longer have attacks. I do eat other raw nuts and seeds.

I do use probiotics, digestive enzymes, and aloe. Any time I don't feel quite right after eating I take more of them and it helps.
