C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again?

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.

I also took Vanco for 6 weeks then we tried another 6 weeks and flagyl together which cleared it up. We didn't have to do Dificid, they were also talking about a poop transplant. I read up on those and they aren't very safe alot of people die from those which totally scared me and I read that after the fact. Keflex is on my no list of antibiotics thats a supposed cdiff starter. I went over a year the first time and I cried for and hour when I found out I had it the second time cause no one told me it stays in your system so it was a surprise to me. I hope you feel better soon!!
