Feb 10, 2018 · Trying to recover from a c.diff infection in Digestive Health

Sorry to hear you are having issues @acres When I had taken to much antibiotics I also had C-Diff. I had a colonoscopy after as well to make sure it wasnt stuck in any places. When I say getting stuck , I had ulcers when I was younger and beyond the c-diff bacteria can stay in those spots or any area. I would suggest to do it., there maybe more there or your body just is over load with antibiotics now and they are not working. Transplant is a great option. I was having issue with my gallbladder and it was removed before I had c-diff. I have issues with bm because of my chronic pancreatitis, I check my bm always and forever. I also have IBS, but that was checked after c-diff. Which I have been a vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. Nothing really worked for me or help my IBS issues. I am glad I went to the Mayo clinic, which they found everything and I had seen many Dr. By then as well. I hope your doctor’s are talking to each other or you are going in circles. I just had my 10th colonoscopy since I was 32. Write everything down the doctor says and ask questions. Good luck and keep us updated.

Hello @sin9 If you applied for SSI benefits and haven’t heard anything keep calling them. Like every day and keep on it. I was denied the first time and I appeal it and got a lawyer when I wasn’t working. There are good lawyers out there that will not charge you or will charge you once you won your case. Don’t give up and keep track of every call and who you spoke to. keep all records of Dr. visits, hospital visit, ER visit. SSI will send you to a dr once you appeal it and have gone thru a 2nd process. Ask your Social Worker for more help as well that’s what they are for. Do you have medical assistance in your state? Apply for insurance thru your social worker, hospital, or Obama Care. If you are low income or no income they will help you get it. That’s what the program is for to help you. Keep all records of bills to from the day you applied for SSI, they will back pay them and you. The sooner you do all this the better……… Trust me. I had to lose my job because I was so sick and applied for SSI before I lost it because I couldn’t work full time no longer. Back in 2010 there was no Obama Care or Law, so my company dropped me. I hope this helps you and your journey in this tough world. Remember you are never alone.

A BRAT diet is made of banana, rice, apple sauce and toast. The BRAT diet is a diet that has been recommended for people with vomiting, diarrhea or gastroenteritis.
Since I had an pancreatitis attack last night I am on electrolyte water and toast today. I find apple sauce with cinnamon helps with nausea and toast with cinnamon as well. I work my way up daily from there if I can. I normally stay away from protien since it is so hard to digest it. Keep in mind if your pancreatitis pain is so bad after eating with any of these and cant hold down water as well. Then go to the ER please and consult with your physician. My Dietician told me to eat what you can and hold down with out pain. At that time I was a vegan and bought back foods slowly to see what I can eat. I hope this helps you all in your recovery.

I hope by now you have an answer for your pain. It took 7 years for me to get my answer. After so many test and removal of my gallbladder, I was still in so much pain. They told me it was in my head and put me on antidepressants. Once i found the Mayo Clinic, all my answers were answered. I complained about nausea, left center pain, back killed me like someone punched me. Couldnt eat food but i was still very bloated. Lost weight and only certain positions would help me. If i ate the pain would come back. They tested me for MS, Crohn’s disease, being pregnant. Finally my internal doctor told me it was chronic pancreatitis and IBS. By then my other issues got out of control. Like PCOS was fighting me and my fibro kicked in like no other. So my weight would drop, then my weight would gain very quickly. Its been 7 years since then = 14 years now that i have been dealing with it. My duodenum does have issues opening up. I was born this way and it didnt hit me until i was 31 yrs old. Lucky me right. I am on many meds – pancreas meds, ibs, gurd, pain meds, vitiams and plus my pcos meds. I had a ercp and even biopsy of my intestines, endoscope, and bw. My # didnt always show anything. It helped me finding the answer and knowing i wasnt crazy. That sucks just as much then the pain. I am still having attacks and my meds have changed by increasing them. Soon i may need to have it removed and have a bag. My life will never be the same as it once was since i live day by day do to pain. But knowing helped me lift a big issue. Stress doesnt help at all with already vomiting or diarrhea. Do some breathing techniques and get an internal medicine Dr. I am lucky my family doctor knew me very well and helped me get in ASAP to the Mayo Clinic. My husbad helps me very much with my disease and understands the pain just wont go away sometimes. Rest and a brat diet will help. Sometimes i just have water and work my way up to food. I hope you have found your answer.
