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

@sandyabbey Thank you so much for the update. I'm 3 months today post Dificid. And like you, I still worry every time I have any cramping or a loose BM. I'm finding a lot depends on what I eat. Green salads and lots of veggies can give me a scare. (The things that are good for us.) 🙂 I still take Florastor daily and have also found another one that's is about 1/2 the price but still has 440 mg of S Boulardii. I order it from Swansons Vitamins on line. I plan to take S Boulardii for the rest of my life. Our situations are very parallel. We both contacted this from Clindamycin. We both have had 4 bouts of Cdiff. We both took Flagyl, Vancomycin and finally Dificid. We are both on social security. Let's hope and pray we are now Cdiff free. I think posting on this site is also helpful to those who have gone through our situations. Especially if we can stay healthy. And I'm in hopes that the price of Dificid (fidaxamicin) will come down so that more and more patients can get it after a second relapse. People should not have to go through 4 bouts of Cdiff. I wouldn't wish the 6 months of 2018 that I went through on my worst enemy. Stay well and please update us after you see your GI.
