It's been a week since visiting the emergency room for intense bowel pains and bloody stool, and I still havent been able to eat anything nutritious without immense pain/ discomfort. The doctors said colon is inflamed but they don't know if it's an infection or a disease. So far, we've been treating it like an infection with antibiotics twice a day but the pills are making me nauseous and lose my appetite. Long story short: somebody please suggest something to eat before I keel over and have to nibble on saltines.

      Potatoes are a godsend. Also, bone broth! I am generally vegetarian but when I am flaring, I drink bone broth and it goes down easy while giving me nutrients.

      Sometimes the hospital can prescribe nutrition drinks when you are having a flare up. There is a brand called fortijuice which are really easy to drink and get you your calories in! Hope you start to feel better soon ❤️

      Hi! I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been in pain. I was recently diagnosed with UC and was in the hospital earlier this week / have had bloody stool and the works as well. I have found oatmeal and refined white carbs are the best to settle my stomach when in flare. Bananas, avocado, lean meats and potato including sweet potato work for me too. I think everyone is different and unfortunately it’s a bit of trial and error. Be kind to yourself and know you will get through this!
