C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

Clindamycin was my culprit too. I’ll NEVER take it again. I had 3 relapses & my next step was to be FMT. I tested negative a few days ago after a round of Dificid. They said they might retest to be sure in a couple of more weeks. This had consumed me. My last relapse sent me to the hospital in a ambulance. I’m down to 85 pounds. The dr said it could be up to a year before normal comes again & it might never. I’m very distressed

@sandyabbey I'm wondering if our muscles have something to do with our BM after Cdiff. I had Cdiff 4 times in 2018 starting in April and ending in October after taking Deficid. But I'm finding it harder to have a normal BM because of the muscles used to help the colon. Maybe I'm wrong…. but I think after so many months of diarrhea and not using those muscles or whatever helps push the feces through, it's more difficult to go back to normal. And I NEVER thought I would be talking about BM's this much in my entire life. 🙂

@sandyabbey I'm happy to hear you are testing negative after taking Dificid. So far it worked for me. I finished the RX on Oct. 26th. I still have days that my BM's are loose and I continue to worry any time I have stomach cramping. I just think it will take a year or so to ever be truly "normal" again. Now I deal with severe gas pains, especially late at night and when I get up in the am. "THINK POSITIVE AND STAY NEGATIVE." I think that's going to be my mantra for 2019. 🙂 🙂
