C. diff relapse?

Posted by patts @patts, Sep 1, 2019

How many have had a relapse. I finished my two weeks of vancomycin and believe I still have it. Did a stool sample Friday, so I guess I’ll see. Tired of isolation, Clorox and mood.

I would think if you’re still having diarrhea you may still have it, but I’m not a doctor. After my first dose of Vancomycin and still having issues, I was tested and it came out positive. The second time turned out to not be c diff. I asked my doctor about how I could tell and she reminded e that c diff has a certain odor.

Voice your concerns with your doctor

While I have never experienced a relapse, I did contract it three separate times. Then that was the last of it.
