From what I've been reading, more and more doctors are no longer prescribing Flagyl for the first episode of Cdiff. They're using Vancomycin. I hope more doctors will prescribe Dificid (fidaxamicin) if there is a relapse. Cliff is so hard on our bodies. And it takes months after an episode for the colon and intestinal tract to get back to normal. And it's not only a physical challenge, but also a mental one. Whenever I have diarrhea, for even ONE day, I fear Cdiff is back and my emotions run rampant. I thought I did everything right, yet I went through FOUR episodes of Cdiff in 2018. And with every episode, my chances of a reoccurrence went higher. I did the bleach, the wipes, the hand washing, you name it. We were very careful and none of my family members were infected. But I also lived with that fear. My heart goes out to all of you who are fighting this battle. It's something I'd never even heard of until I took Clindamycin and a couple weeks later, became so sick. I now feel like a "Cdiff expert." 🙂 I wish you all well in 2019.
