@femalegolfer Was the last antibiotic you took in November, 2017? I ended up with a UTI last summer when I had Cdiff. I was so sick trying to fight both of them. And Cipro is right up there with Clindamycin. I ended up taking Macrobid for the UTI. I'll never taking Cipro again either. It would be interesting to see what the studies show after people have done the FMT's for more than a couple years. I read one story about two sisters and the heavier one used her thinner sister as a FMT donor. Within six months, she had lost a lot of weight. As was mentioned, FMT is not even suggested until you've relapsed 3 or 4 times. I know my insurance wouldn't pay for Deficid until I had tried Vancomycin. So they probably wouldn't pay for FMT either.
