My husband has diverticulosis. The low residue/fiber diet has been extremely helpful.

I was diagnosed with a small bowel obstruction (SBO) last November, and placed on a low residue diet upon leaving the hospital. This manages the problem very well. It does definitely restrict diet choices, though, which tends to make food choice repetitive and many times pretty boring!
