Diverticulosis and gastric ulcers pain?

An Endoscopy 4-21 indicated I had gastric ulcers. I had been having upper stomach pain, couldn't wear a bra, just pressure and pain. Prior to that a couple weeks, had a CT scan lower abdominal/pelvic pain and chronic constipation. Now I have 2 diagnoses-gastric ulcers and "minor" diverticulosis (also IBS). For the diverticulosis, I was prescribed Librax and to drink Citracel. For the ulcer, Protonix 40 mg and Myralox. Todays' follow up of edoscopy, she upped the Protonix to 2 40 mg 2x day, and 2 glasses of Myralax because up until last night I still had the constipation. Since last night, either the Myralax and/or Citracel started working because I've had diahrrea green pencil thin now for almost 24 hrs. I'm not taking any Immodium because I feel my colon needs to be cleaned out anyway. Why the green, why so thin and broken up and is the diahrrea today causing the upper gastric ulcer pain again because since last week after my first Protonix, that pain almost went away. I also take 50 mg amitriptoline, 2-3 .25 xanax a day, a probiotic called Culturelle, my low dose hormone.  I feel like I have to treat 2 disorders here and don't know what/how to do it re diet, pain, constipation and/or diahrrea now?
