C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@ngorman25 , if FMT is 90% effective, why are we bothering with more antibiotics? I don't understand why Dr's won't just go that route after one fail of antibiotics? I am on my first round of vanco after being diagnosed on Wednesday, but sadly I lived with Cdiff for the last 8 months or so and never went to the Dr. I would have bad flare ups at times, like when I had strep and was given antibiotics, but I never shared how my bowels were affected with Dr., shame on me I know. So I'm praying that this 10 day treatment will bring me back to normal because I'm so tired of feeling bad. Clindamycin needs to be banned!!

@femalegolfer I agree re. Clindamycin. Many dentists give it out for infections or prior to root canals. My dr. gave it to me for a sinus infection but I have a friend who was given it prior to a root canal.

Amen to that!
