I am in a similar situation. Had cdiff since September. Have Ben on vancomycin an flora stir for a while. Keep feeling like a kno in my side. Went to infectious disease doctor and she said my symptoms not cdiff had two ct scans told mild colitis. Put me on questran not helping. My stomach is hungry but I don’t want to eat because every morning I get up an have a minimum of 5 bowel move. I am tired and hungry all the time.

It sounds like you have ulcerative colitis, if you do you should ask your GI doctor to put you on Asacol 800 mg tablets, it's a great drug and it works for me. It is expensive but if you have a drug plan your GI doctor can write it so it will be affordable. If you don't have a drug plan then you can use Delzicol which is the same drug but at a lower strength. See which one will help you.
Don't be afraid to eat, obviously you must eat to be healthy. Colitis is a annoying disease but can be under control with the right medication and diet.
I also take fiber tablets,and don't eat spicy foods or a lot of dairy products , a little milk in cereal Is ok , but you must test the foods yourself to see what works best for you. I hope this will be helpful.

After your vanc treatment ,did you have a stool culture done to be sure the c.diff was gone ?
