How many days would i stay on a bland diet following a diverticulitis attack?

How many days would i stay on a bland diet following a diverticulitis attack?

Depends: It depends on how bad the attack is. Sometimes diverticulitis attacks are bad enough that they require hospital admission with IV antibiotics. Sometimes they can be treated with antibiotics by mouth as an outpatient. If the attack is bad you might be kept nothing by mouth for a few days. Or it is possible that you could be kept on clear liquids for a few days while the attack resolves. ...Read more

I had gallbladder surgery 4 days ago. Doing very well. Tired of bland diet, what can I eat? I'm afraid to eat anything not bland!

I had gallbladder surgery 4 days ago. Doing very well. Tired of bland diet, what can I eat? I'm afraid to eat anything not bland!

No restrictions: After the gallbladder is removed there is no need to avoid fatty foods. Prior to surgery, a patient with gallbladder problems should avoid fatty foods to avoid symptoms. A small percentage of patients will get post op urgency, which is an urgent need to have a bm about 30-45 minutes after meals. This will be self limited, or easily quelled with Imodium ad. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a Ulcer and already taking meds for 1 week and on bland diet but I'm getting a lil chills is that normal?

I have a Ulcer and already taking meds for 1 week and on bland diet but I'm getting a lil chills is that normal?

See your doctor...: It's hard for me to know what's going on completely without your medical record and examining you in person. When you say ulcer, I assume you mean a peptic ulcer in the stomach/small intestine. There are a few types that are treated differently. Chills may represent either an infection or allergy to the meds you are taking. You should go back to your treating doctor to discuss these new symptoms. ...Read more

Probiotics: You need probiotics. Start gently and increase. Consider kombucha, kefir, and other naturally fermented foods. Make sure you get saccharomyces boulardii with the probiotic mix. Eat lots of organic fruit and vegetables. Can drink green tea and herbal teas also. Glutamine can assist in gut healing. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with severe gastritis from NSAIDs made worse by antibiotics.  Taking Prilosec 2x day and bland diet. How long for pain to subside?

Could be a while: Could be as short as a fee days but sometimes it can take time for the stomach to heal, on the order of a couple of weeks. As long as you are slowly (or quickly) improving, that is the most important thing. ...Read more
