C Difficile: Do you have memory issues, disoriention, confusion?
Welcome @dpete19743, I added your message to the Digestive Health group where you'll also find these discussions on C-difficile:
I'd also like to bring in fellow members @pines @plm2019 @sue6408 @annapocono @ngorman25 @sarasally2 along with @fotula into this discussion.
Pete, when will you have the fecal microbiota transplant (FMT)? Have you noticed the cognitive issues only since contracting c-difficile?

I finally had the FMT after not being able to cure c-diff, I searched for a doc that would do it, very expensive and insurance wouldn't cover a donor but a gastro doc right where I live did it for me calling it a colonoscopy, he provided the donor. I don't think I ever recovered then recently I had to go on antibiotics again and nearly fell apart from worry, I have taken florastor for five years but after this last five different antibiotics I took another probiotic, visbiome, I think it was called, very expensive but I didn't care, still worried.
I didn't notice my memory issues it was pointed out to me by friends, family, my attorney and now one of my clients. According to all of them I have been showing memory issues just in the past year. I can't remember some conversations, dates, times and places. Hope this helps if you need more detail I can share more.
