I contracted C-diff after taking Clyndamycin for a dental issue. It was horrible! I truly thought I was not going to make it and neither did my husband. It has taken months to recover thoroughly. I am normally an active person who exercises 6 days a week and tries to stay healthy. This set me back immensely. I was weak for quite a while. Gradually I've improved to the point where my life has returned to "my normal". I also have a "tortuous intestine" (more intestine than needed for a person my size), which has caused me grief and constipation all my life. And actually, through this site, and sharing, I found Prunelax that has helped me more than I can say. I would never want C-diff again but I'm grateful for finding this site. When I was recovering I took pro-biotics for two months along with Miralax, (which did nothing) stool softener, etc. Nothing worked like the Prunelax. I still make sure I'm getting the proper fiber, water intake, and I am taking magnesium but I plan on dropping that when I finish the bottle. It's always a learning process and adjustments need to be made that work best for you as an individual. But as far as recovering from C- diff it took me 9 months to almost get back to the real me. I have lost 10 pounds that I can't seem to gain back and that puzzles me but I'm doing well. I hope that everyone finds what works for them. I know it can be scary and very frustrating to go through this. And initially I was just trying to survive so I understand the fear. Best wishes to all! Merry Christmas! Jacque

Oh my goodness. Terrible. How did you get rid of the C. Diff? Flagyl, Vancomycin, Deficid? Any of these work for you?
