C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@pines This has all been so helpful to me! I also had the gel like puss but didn't know about this website at the time and was really alarmed…My bowels are now starting to look a bit more normal (sigmoid colon removed on Nov 27, with first C-Diff bout in late October and second after the surgery). I started out with Vancomycin and this time I am on the tapered down Vancomycin, which will carry me through the first week in Thailand. I am hoping upon hope that I will get through last week there without a third bout. I am not sure right now about how vigilant I need to be about changing bedsheets, etc., I usually do once a week but am doing every other day now, along with using the medical grade Clorox to wipe things down. So afraid I am going to miss something and re-infect myself. After reading so many posts on this site, I am counting my blessings…grateful that so many of us can find suggestions/answers/ideas on this site. Thanks for sharing your experience, strength,and hope!

@serenityva If I may ask, why did they remove part of your colon?

@serenityva I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are doing and if you were healthy during your visit to Thailand.
