C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

I just had my first FMT a week ago after failure of Flagyl, vancomycin & Dificid. I feel bloated if I eat even a small amount. It doesn’t show right now because I lost down to 85. I’ve been sick since October. Taken to the hospital once by ambulance. I just feel full easily. My problem is that when I’m clear before a relapse I go for 3-4 days without a BM. Only thing is that if they tell me to take something it gives me diarrhea. Right now at just a week from my FMT I can’t take anything of any kind without clearing it by my GI. He’s great thought & has tried hard to get me well. Cdiff is a monster that consumes you. I hope I don’t relapse after this FMT. He said lots had to have another one. He’s hoping I’m going to ne clear. I sure hope so. I have had no life since I got this.

@sandyabbey When I asked my doctor last week what happens if the fmt doesn't work?, He answered "we do it again"! Definitely not what I wanted to hear. In reading a lot about cdiff, I read that more women get it than men. I wonder if it was reversed, if we all would have heard of it before and if a whole lot more would be done to have a cure. Sorry, if this sounds sexist, but it's the way I really feel.

I'm going through the same thing.
