I was diagnosed last night (in the ER) with Colitis.
Now...I ate a nice, mostly bland lunch...which contained sesame seeds (not powdered or tahini-but straight seeds).
So then my bf's mother calls me
and the first thing she says, when I tell her it's colitis, is "I hope you haven't been eating any seeds! They get stuck in the lining of the bowels and irritate you more!"
So now I have a question, cuz the research I get is coming up short, and the doc made it seem like colitis goes away, but according to some websites, it doesn't?
What do I eat? Obviously not spicy foods or seeds, and I'm already vegan, so dairy's not an issue.
So, I'm at a loss, and if anyone could help me out, that would be awesome.
Sorry about bringing up such a yucky topic...I'm sure it's every day people want to research on the bowels!
