    I was recently hospitalized for 5 days for my pain lower right abdominal pain. First was told gall bladder or appendix. they did cat scan then told colitis as well that my small and large intestines was inflamed. was on Iv fluids whole time in hospital as well clear liquid diet first two days. moved to solid foods after the 2 days as well gave coffee, sweeteners, normal meals. As well I am type one diabetic forgot to mention as well a controlled diabetic at that.

    Since released and home just before super bowl which I did not watch, or indulge in any major snacks or foods. As I have been adjusting my choices of foods and diets due to low income as well quality of foods to select at local stores.
    I eliminate beef and pork 18 months about before hospitalized and was a veggie, fish, chicken diet. Well all I have eaten or drank is a salad lunch, and salad dinner, with soy/ginger/vinaigrette dressing. fresh veggies as in any salad but added broccoli baby spinach and Brussels sprouts steamed into the salad.

    Upon laying down for the evening about 3 hours later I start throwing up. no other issues. My beverages was only diet Pepsi, water, and two cups of coffee. my throw up was really all liquids? one or two chunks that was black did not look like anything I ate?

    I pick up my anti biotic, and pain medication from pharmacy.

    You may want to post your question to the Crohn's and colitis board: since both your large and small intestine are involved. Those with similar inflammatory patterns may be able to give you more of a hand with your question.
