Still having gut problems after severe Cdiff & FMT

@sandyabbey I wish more people would give us updates about FMT. And I'm so sorry to hear that Dificid didn't work for you. After taking Flagyl, Vancomycin (twice) and Dificid last October, I had decided doing the FMT would be my next step. So far, so good, after taking the Dificid. I hadn't heard about constipation after doing the FMT. Have you been able to put some weight back on? You're so right when you say Cdiff is a monster. Every time I've had a cold this winter, I was afraid it would turn in to another sinus infection. And I'll never take Clindamycin again…. or any other antibiotic… if I can help it. I usually get UTI's, at least one a year, and I've been so careful trying to avoid getting one. I've even changed my soap to a ph balanced one.

@pines @sandyabbey I had FMT on Feb 28. After a small accident the day of, I didn’t have stool for 3-4 days which I expected. Exactly a week later, I had diarrhea 10x one day and 2x the next. I wanted to scream “no this isn’t happening!” Well, no more diarrhea. I have been constipated. I am able to go some but I’m bloated and crampy. I’ll call my doc Monday to update. I feel that the cdiff is gone (things are definitely different) but I don’t feel well in a different way. I have Crohn’s as well as IBS and before C diff my usual had been constipation. So, I’m not sure if I’m normal again or not. FMT is still so new… I’m not sure the docs have all the answers. I know trials are being done to see if FMT will help Crohn’s and IBS. Time will tell. I hope you all get answers!
