C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@katek001 Last year, I also did vancomycin for 10 days, then another Cdiff relapse so I did the Vanco pulse and taper for 6 weeks. Cdiff again returned three weeks later. I then took Dificid (fidaximicin) for 10 days and that's the RX that finally killed all the Cdiff spores. My GI also has me taking Florastor or any probiotic with S. Boulardii. I finished the Dificid last October and I still have days where I'll have loose stools. I think it will take a year or longer to ever feel "normal" again.

I'm on probiotics too! I just feel so bad for my little one, I've been on antibiotics practically since she's been born. I'm breastfeeding, the doctors said vancomycin was safe for breastfeeding. I had the crabbiest baby for about 3 months
