just wondering if others who have the same disease are told they cannot eat nuts, strawberriesl, blackberries, corn and tomatoes. I really cannot see why the tiny seeds in tomatoes would hurt anyone, but I try to obey my doctor since I had a really bad experience with bleeding diverticulitis a few months ago which landed me in the hospital for five days. Plus I had to have four units of blood before the bleeding stopped, and I was anemic going in. welcome any input. :-)

I think the issue is controversial. Some doctors say ok to these foods and others sayno-mo. With your history I would take the conservative approach and avoid them. Diverticulitis is no picnic. I didn't think much about it when the Doctor fist diagnosed me. After I had a colostomy caused by divertiulitis I became a convert. Incidentally now that I have no lower bowel I can eat all of those things without any problem

wow you really convinced me. that was a bummer. My poor husband had to have a colonostomy because he had cancer, and he lived for many years afterwards, what did him in was his smoking he had two heart attacks, the second one was fatal. So I guess I can go along with my doctor's advice as I do not want to have another attack. The first one was bleeding and it really did scare me, I lost so much blood I had four units of blood before my blood count was back to normal. All because I had ate some blackberries. So its not worth it, for sure. thanks.
