You can you tolerate: Diverticulitis mystifies , same disease acts differently , some never know they had it , in some the first attack takes them to emergency surgery, in most it lingers in their whole life , the reason for varieties of opinion. Once the acute attack subsides try it as you can not stay on liquids for ever, speak to your doctor , persistent recurrent disease require surgery.
