C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@ngorman25 , @nurseheadakes I've been doing good. The last and 4th cdiff episode was last October. I wish I would have taken Dificid earlier since that was the antibiotic that worked for me. I've been fortunate that I didn't get any more sinus infections and no need for antibiotics the entire winter. I'm sorry to hear that you're still only 89 pounds. You've really had a difficult time. As for the colonoscopy, yes I will make the appointment. During my last one, the doctor was not able to complete it as we found out I have a tortuous colon. He couldn't make the last turn. So I ended up going through the process again and having it done at the hospital a week later where they could put the contrast inside me and do it that way while I was awake. Since 4 bouts of cdiff, I feel like I've read so many studies, watched so many videos and truly educated myself on this dreadful bacteria/spore.

So, I have a question for everyone. My gastro doctor had told me on more than one occasion that it wasn't necessary to continue taking probiotics. I'm on the fence about this. I am doing ok (so far) since my fmt on March 22. Are any of you still taking probiotics?
