C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?
I’m 2 days after vancomycin and already feeling ill this is crazy

@terridrag I believe you said this was your first bout with Cdiff and that you were on Vanco for 14 days. When I took Vanco for 10 days, I relapsed after just 5 days. If you test positive again for Cdiff, you might want to ask your doctor for an RX for 10 days of Dificid. It's terribly expensive, even after insurance. But so far, I'm 3 months out since I finished taking it. And I have a friend who is almost 3 years since her 2nd Cdiff relapse. Another person on this site said they were 26 days since they finished Dificid (fidaxamicin). My heart goes out to you. I know first hand what you're going through.
