can someone tell me the treatment and how long they had this for?
Typically the first treatment is Metronidazole and if that doesn't work then it's vancomycin. My doc went from metronidazole to Alinia which didn't help at all. I am now on vanco and have seen some improvements but not much. I've been battling this since may 1st. I was sick for a month and a half before being diagnosed with c diff colitis
I believe that Cipro is one of the antibiotics known to cause c-diff. I wonder why the doctors would prescribe Cipro for either one of you. Standard treatments are Flagyl first, then Vancomycin if needed. Also, if you search this site for "c-diff", someone known as "MOCN" has offered up a very good recommendation for treatment. Wish you all the best.
After suffering from Cipro induced c-diff for two years, and I mean suffering and almost dying twice, I finally convinced my Dr. to do a fecal transplant. My granddaughter was the donor, she went on a simple diet for a week- she ate nothing that could not pass between the times of a fork, and my Dr. used a sigmoidoscope to place the sample in my colon. I was cured overnight. Simple, cheap and effective.
