My Mother has diverticulitis she is 80 years old. She started having bad episodes to the point of no appetite and weak in the U of M hospital. The doctors put her on a medicine for 4 days and then switch the medicine to a low dose steroid medicine and sent her home. 3 days later we bring her back to the hospital because the episodes came back. My thought is when she was given the medicine at home she would take the medicine and not eat lunch until 2:30 p.m.
The meds mostly say take with a glass of water or be sure to eat food with this medicine. I can see that my Mother needs around the clock care. The occupational therapists and doctors do not!
