RDP Tuesday: diverticulitis

Very happy Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday and today’s word is diverticulitis.

NOT MUCH FUN… but antibiotics are great for me! So attach your word or story or (uh-oh) photograph (are you sure you want that public) or CT scan or made up meaning of the word…. something about divertingticklish or something…

Attach your brilliant piece of work and we shall see! Have a great Tuesday!

The picture is the face in the sky zoomed in, from my beach walk two days ago. It was very compelling.

Face in the sky made of light through the clouds.

  1. Luckily, a word I didn’t know. Frustrating, when the dictionary tells you diverticulitis in English is Divertikulitis in German. 🙄 -itis is never good, I know that much. Well, the English-English dictionary tells me it is an infection of a bulge of a hollow organ. Well, with bulge I can oblige, photowise.
    Hope you get well soon!

  2. I am really enjoying the contributions and it’s cheering me up! Especially since no food for another two days! Only clear liquids and one antibiotic I’m on can act like antabuse, so none of THOSE clear liquids…stay healthy and take care of yourselves!

  3. I have seen a couple of write ups that talk about not eating nuts or seeds or popcorn: however, that is a little out of date. Here are the Mayo Clinic recommendations for prevention:

    Exercise regularly. Exercise promotes normal bowel function and reduces pressure inside your colon. Try to exercise at least 30 minutes on most days.
    Eat more fiber. A high-fiber diet decreases the risk of diverticulitis. Fiber-rich foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains, soften waste material and help it pass more quickly through your colon. Eating seeds and nuts isn’t associated with developing diverticulitis.
    Drink plenty of fluids. Fiber works by absorbing water and increasing the soft, bulky waste in your colon. But if you don’t drink enough liquid to replace what’s absorbed, fiber can be constipating.
    Avoid smoking. Smoking is associated with an increased risk of diverticulitis.
