Hello and welcome to HCM
You seem to have suffered from acute diverticulitis
with infection that had gone to liver and formed and abscess
. Recurrence of diverticular disease
is common and can be best avoided by diet alterations. Patients should eat a fiber-enriched diet that includes 30 g of fiber each day. Fiber softens the stool and helps prevent constipation
. It also can help decrease pressure in the colon and help prevent flare-ups of diverticulitis.
High-fiber foods include:
Beans and legumes,Bran, whole wheat bread and whole grain cereals such as oatmeal
Brown and wild rice,Fruits such as apples, bananas and pears
Vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, corn and squash.
Drink at least 8-10 cups of fluid daily. Fluid will help soften your stool. Exercise also promotes bowel movement and helps prevent constipation.
The incidence of complicated diverticular disease appears to be increased in people who smoke. Therefore avoid smoking
For long-term medical management of uncomplicated diverticular disease, rifaximin (a poorly absorbed broad-spectrum antibiotic), is associated with 30% less frequent recurrent symptoms from uncomplicated diverticular disease.
Furthermore, the use of probiotics has been shown to decrease the incidence of recurrent attacks.
Hope i have answered your queries.
Wish you good health.
