3 days ago · C. difficile -are your guts ever normal again ? in Digestive Health

Well one i was on was Bactrim for a lung infection but due to blood count issues they are switching me to a once a month inhalat called Pentamidine. It attacks the virus directly in the lungs. So it won't affect the blood stream. This is preventive but also should not cause cdif. I haven't started yet but we will see.

Well. At least one im already allergic to erthromycin. And yes i do have bries available but not needed yet. I was in the hosp when i had mine and the bathroom was a few feet away. I dread having it at home the bathroom is not very close most of the time. Plus stairs and carpet.

My Gastro Dr also mentioned Amoxicillin. I take it for dental work but he said a one day use should be fine.

So far my docs suggest ion is helping also. Eating small meals every 2 hours.

Me too i had cdiff in june but took untill now for my belly and bloating to decrease. Its not completely gone but ive lost about 3 in across my belly button circumference. I still get some pain low on my belly like near the belly button after eating but per dr suggestion i am eating small meals every couple of hours rather than big ones. He says to much food at once irritates the gut and slows down healing.

Im not familiar with your condition but some insurance companies offer talking to a live doctor via video chat like mine which in Blue Cross Blue Shield. I think they charge for the service tho.
