Diet: Once your doctor has said you are improved & off antibiotics, the doctor would usually tell you when to advance to a high fiber diet to try to prevent recurrent diverticulitis. Usually you can eat normal healthy high fiber foods when healed. Some antibiotics react poorly with antibiotics so check with your doctor.

Try it: They should be just fine - and rum and coke and wine are not a bad thing. Cheers.
