C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

THank you @pines for your response to my posting. I am taking vancomyacin . I am washing my hands constantly. What has surprised me is how little information there is about how to protect other people from catching it. I have a nurse practitioner friend who has worked with thousands of hospitalized patients with C.Diff. she says what you said about counters and light switches and washig hands. She also added that from now going forward I should never let a person eat from my plate or use my utensil (I guess because the spores can lie dormant in a host). Did you know that the EPA has a list of products that they approve as effective against C.Diff? I believe they work faster than bleach and water. Again thank you for your response.

I was told bleach was the only thing to kill spores. We are contagious until maybe about 6 days after we started on antibiotics. I always kept rubber gloves in the bathroom for when I went and kept people out of the house for a week. This is just what I was told. Good luck to you.
