C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@losthope @serenityva With my first bout, I had a lot of "gel like" stools. When reading everything I could about C.diff, I also found articles with photos of exactly what my BM's were like. The "gel like" is actually puss and sloughing of the colon lining and would float in the water. I never in my like thought I would be talking to people about BM's. How things change after 4 bouts of C.diff for me. And yes, they were very narrow, almost pencil like in size.

I will never forget the smell of cdiff. I actually work in a hospital and you sometimes smell it and gag. I nevertheless thought I would talk about my BM to anyone. I just am glad I have people to talk to it is scared and it is so life changing. I pray for everyone who has this disease and I think clindamycin should be taken off the market

I have the slime too. And I too am surprised that I am talking so much about my stools and slime. But I feel grateful that others have my issues
