C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@sandyabbey I was in hopes you would give us an update after finishing the Dificid. I agree with you regarding the cost. I could have taken it after my first bout of Cdiff when the Flagyl didn't work. But I decided, because of the cost, to go with Vancomycin. And after doing 10 days on Vanco and then another relapse and doing the Vanco taper, I finally said enough and I'll pay the Dificid high price. Our insurance paid all but about $1,000. Terrible. But they say it's because it's a new drug and is only used for C.diff. I finished the Dificid on Oct. 26th and have not had a relapse. I knock on wood every time I say that. I now need to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. I'm worried about doing the cleaning and going through the process. And like you, if I have another relapse, I'll do the FMT. 2018 is a year I'm happy to put behind me. 🙂

Did you have to test again for cdiff before your dr ordered it. I am battling with mine because I haven’t had a total relapse yet. I am still having frequent bowel movements and irritation so I am praying getting better but not optimistic. I have leaking and have to wipe multiple times even when not having a bowel movements

I’m 26 days post Dificid. So far no relapse, but I had a scare lady night. I had a watery stool once , but I haven’t had any like that. I’ve had cramping during this time also. I see my GI Tuesday Unless get worse before then. I’m sure anxious. I’m going to ask for a retest. I hope you do well @pines
