C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

I am over the diarrhea but I have painful constipation. I bloat so badly I look 9 months pregnant and it’s like thumping a watermelon. Anyone else?

Me too i had cdiff in june but took untill now for my belly and bloating to decrease. Its not completely gone but ive lost about 3 in across my belly button circumference. I still get some pain low on my belly like near the belly button after eating but per dr suggestion i am eating small meals every couple of hours rather than big ones. He says to much food at once irritates the gut and slows down healing.

I suffered with C-diff almost a whole year before finally being diagnosed. It took one round of vanco and one round of dificid. I finished that in February and have tested negative since. However, some days I'm sure it is back, then after several days, I feel better. It's been a constant roller coaster. I still bloat awful, it doesn't seem to matter what I eat, not eat or exercise. I am one of the few that gained over 15 pounds while suffering with it. I'm not sure why…I'm still lacking in energy and motivation…I'm wondering if something else is going on. I am 47 and have been very active and healthy up until this hit me.
