C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

Well, I was scheduled for fmt via colonoscopy for Monday, March 25. This past Monday, March 18, doctor's office cancelled Monday and moved the procedure to this Friday, March 22. I had to call my daughter and ask her to take off work Friday. She already took off Monday! I just happened to call my insurance to get an idea of what my copay will be. The girl tells me that I need "prior authorization"! Holy crap! I called doctor's office at 2pm today and left VM that if I don't have authorization by 5 today, the colonoscopy would be off! Got a call at 3pm today telling me they got authorization! Nothing like the 11th hour. My nerves are shot! My anxiety is through the roof! If this doesn't work, I don't know what I will do but I don't think I will do this again. Now I get to do the colonoscopy prep tomorrow​. So fed up.

@ngorman25 I sure hope the FMT works for you. I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones that Dificid worked for. But I remember how upset I would get after Flagyl and two rounds of Vancomycin didn't work. It seems like from April to the end of October of 2018 was such a depressing and debilitating time for me. People that have never had Cdiff just don't understand what it does to the body both physically AND mentally. Just the testing and waiting for results, plus I ended up with a UTI during one of the Cdiff bouts. And worrying about taking another antibiotic for the UTI …. the list goes on and on. My heart goes out to all of you that are still dealing with Cdiff.

Good luck
