C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?
@pines, with C-Diff are bowels green? Mine are…
Am on 2nd tolume round with Vancomycin, will wind it up while I am out if the country, hoping I have at least a week or two before it rears it’s ugly head again…in time to get back home.

@serenityva I recall you were planning a trip to Thailand after Christmas. It would be nice if your doctor would give you enough Vanco so you could stay on that during your trip. I did the Vanco taper so at the end of the 5 weeks, I was only taking one every other day. But it kept the C.diff spores at bay for three weeks after I finished it. My bowel movements (BM's) were never green as you said yours are. During a couple of the bouts that were most severe, I started having a lot of puss like BM's that were more of an orange in color. You might want to check with your doctor.
No green stool just small and narrow. I find I just can’t wipe myself enough gel like leaking. Going to talk to GI. The smell has gone but still a lot of bowel movements
