@annapocono . I finished 20 days of vancomycin on feb 14 and have been slowly slowly getting better since then but now it looks like i have a urinary tract infection. Not sure yet but likely. Have any of you had experience of this? Did you take an antibiotic? which one? did you relapse? or did you not relapse? if you didn't relapse i would really want to know the name of that antibiotic.

@annapocono My heart goes out to you. That same thing happened to me during my 3rd Cdiff relapse. At the time, I was doing the vancomycin pulse and taper. I took Macrobid for the UTI, along with the Vanco, which at that time, I was down to only one Vanco a day. I was advised NOT to take Cipro. However, three weeks after finishing the Vanco taper, I had my 4th Cdiff relapse. That's when I did the 10 days on Dificid (fidaxamicin). Thankfully, the Dificid worked and I have not had a relapse and it's been over 4 months now. I've never had anything as debilitating as Cdiif. I didn't dare plan anything for fear that I would relapse. All this from taking Clindamycin for a sinus infection.
