@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.

@pines Well, they gave me one loperamide right before the procedure. Then they gave me another one right after the procedure. However, I don't think loperamide works that fast especially since I was still getting rid of the bowel prep this morning. I think they should have told me to take before I left home. But what do I know?

@ngorman25 I think they put quite a bit up there and some is saline. I lost saline for sure and some of the other. I read that FMT through colonoscopy is the best. Capsules do not work as well. However, we all have to do what we can. Every experience is different! I feel that I am on the road to recovery. Today has been much better! I hope this does it for you!!
