C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

I went undiagnosed for 7 months while trying to get my gp to take me seriously. She just kept trying different acid reducers. Even after the h. Pylori and Candida was caught on egd and colonoscopy the c diff wasn’t found until 2 weeks ago when I had my first ever stool test since my symptoms weren’t subsiding. I am currently on dificid but only have two days left and am still experiencing the pain in my side at full force along with less diarrhea and all my esophagus Candida symptoms. The gi says we can’t treat the lymphatic esophagus and the Candida until the diarrhea is gone.

I'm happy to hear you are taking Dificid. That was the only RX that worked for me. My doctor prescribed Flagyl first in April 2018, then Vanco for my 2nd and 3rd bouts of Cdiff. I even did the Vanco pulse and taper for 6 weeks with my 3rd bout. And finally, last October and my 4th Cdiff episode, I was put on Dificid. I know it's terribly expensive but it worked for me. I was ready to do the FMT if I relapsed again. I'm so fearful of ever needing to take an antibiotic again since Clindamycin for a sinus infection is what started the dreaded Cdiff in my. It's sad that you had to go so long prior to having a stool sample tested.
