C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

@sarasally2 I can sure relate except that I wasn't in the hospital during my 4 bouts of Cdiff in 2018. I've never gone through anything like it. I took Flagyl, Vancomycin twice and even did the pulse and taper for 6 weeks and finally Dificid worked for me. It's terribly expensive and I'm sure that's why the insurance doesn't cover it until I'd tried Vanco. My next alternative was going to be the FMT. All this from taking Clindamycin for a sinus infection. Every time I hear that someone I know is taking antibiotics, I cringe.

mine started from many antibiotics for a sinus infection five years ago and I recently had to take three days of an antibiotic and have been having panic attacks. I really didn't think I was going to make it. I managed to go five years without an antibiotic knowing one day I would have to. I have doubled florastor, flooded myself with water and prayed a lot. I have been dealing with a brain tumor but taking the antibiotic threw me over the brink. The fecal transplant wasn't bad but I have IBS, SIBO, diverticulitis and all kinds of gut issues

Explain the pulse and taper to me, please? I think that’s what my doc is going to do starting next week as I’m finishing up myb2 weeks of 250 mg vanco.
