I am going to try the Florastor. I have been taking probiotics and drinking kiefer I still am on Vanco but getting nervous because my taper is almost done. If I eat meat my colon has spasms and I begin going to the bathroom again. I have not had diarrhea but frequently go to the bathroom. I have to use tucks because I go so often. Did you have side affects from the Florastor or the dificid? Sorry forgot to ask how are you doing? I didn’t mean to go on about myself. I am grateful I have someone to talk to who understands how much this thing changes your life and how frustrating it is to not feel like it will ever end. I hope you had a great Christmas and hope theNew Year is a great one.

@losthope I didn't have any side affects with Dificid or Florastor. I have a lot of gas when I first get up in the morning but I'm not sure if that is from the probiotic. Yesterday marked two months since I took the last Dificid. This is the longest I've gone without a C.diff episode since my first one this past April. When I finished the Vanco taper, I was good for three weeks before the 4th bout of C.diff hit. I understand completely what you are going through. It's like we live it fear with "if and when" it will hit again. You feel trapped in your own home. And unless you've had it, people don't really understand. You can say it's like having the flu, but it really isn't. It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. And to think I got it from taking Clindamycin. Something that's suppose to make you better. I, like you, was so nervous when I ended the Vanco taper. I remember we had relatives visiting us from MN over Labor Day weekend and I was so thankful that my last pill was on Labor Day. I knew I would be okay while the relatives were here. Having C.diff makes you worry about planning anything where you may have to leave your home. Please keep us updated how you're doing.
