Well, I survived (barely!) the colonoscopy prep and had the colonoscopy and fmt this morning. I was not able to"hold it" for very long after the procedure. Don't know how much they give you so I can't tell if I lost it all. I guess only time will tell! Will keep you all posted.

@ngorman25 I'm fortunate that Dificid worked for me after Flagyl and two rounds of Vanco failed. But I had decided FMT would be next but I wanted to talk to my GI about doing the FMT in capsule form from Open Biome. The price was $635 and I would even be willing to pay for it if my ins. didn't. Please keep us posted how you're doing. It would be so hard to try to hold it in for any period of time. Hopefully there's enough higher up in your colon that it will "go to battle" on the Cdiff spores.
