Have you been tested again for c Diff to see if it is gone? It took me over 4 months to stop going a lot to the washroom and yes my bowel movements were a big volume and that’s why I couldn’t gain weight and was loosing a bit my body wasn’t absorbing all the nutrients and the colon is irritated so it takes a while. Hang in there it is a very difficult time it is hell and don’t wish it on anyone. Even to this day I still sometimes have extra trips to the washroom I am still very careful with my food and eat very very clean. Good luck to you wishing you a speedy recovery and please keep us posted.

Thank you for the response. I appreciate it. You stated, “were a big volume and that’s why I couldn’t gain weight and was loosing a bit my body wasn’t absorbing all the nutrients and the colon is irritated so it takes a while.” – did you have a relapse or was this statement in reference to AFTER the infection? I have one big volume BM a day, so the doctor seems satisfied. However, the doctor has mention retesting but the doctor does not know if that would do more harm because of my terrible anxiety about all of this. I’m seeing a therapist because I’m constantly worried it may come back. Also, with one large volume, mushy BM ad day could that mean I still have it? I know I’m asking things I should ask the doctor, but I’m super afraid to get on a cycle of antibiotics that may or may not work. Thank you for “listening”. Glad you are doing a little better.
