My husband whom is 32 was diagnosed Wednesday in the ER with diverticulitis. He is on 2 diff. antibiotics and percocet. He has missed a week of work so far due to a *beauty* Doc that said he pulled a stomach muscle. He has been taking the meds for 3 days so far and the pain is the same. How long did it take any of you to recover, or even for the pain to subside?
Also, what kind of changes in your diet did you make? My husband is a good 200 #'s overweight, he drinks around 6 beers a night and smokes, he wont eat breakfast, he usually has a Red Bull(energy drink) for lunch (even if I pack him a lunch) and then eats dinner, I always make something with a protien, veggie and starch (he wont eat the veggies). I know that I can not make him change, but I would like to think that I could try to get him to eat healthier.
