Mayo online was my go-to for more information ff my 1st miserable diverticulitis diagnosis this past October. After following my pcp's prescribed protocol, I had another lesser episode because I'd reintroduced some raw veggies too soon into my diet. I charted my daily meals for weeks and was very slow after the second bout to reintroduce new foods back into my diet.

Thanks for this Mayo newsletter article. It is an inexpressible comfort to have access to Mayo online and Connect for trusted health information and a place to share with others who are walking a similar path. Would like to add that by gradually adding more fiber and starting a walking program, I've not had another bout of diverticulitis. Yay!

Lovely to hear, fiesty76! I've had pretty much the same experience, with a nasty first-time attack of diverticulitis three years ago, with hospitalization and – equally nasty – antibiotics. Changing diet really helped, and I also make bone broth and consume it regularly. Apparently the collagen helps to soothe the intestines. Never had another attack, fingers crossed for all sufferers!
