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

I have been trying to reply & discuss Cdiff & a moderator told me he moved my post somewhat else. He said so I could interact with some other people. I can’t ever get back to it. I’ve responded to others in different Cdiff discussions. I don't know how to get to a discussion there I can get response. I’ve had 3 relapses of Cdiff from clindamycin so I could have good discussions. I just can’t ever get back to where I started since I was moved.

Clindamycin was my culprit too. I’ll NEVER take it again. I had 3 relapses & my next step was to be FMT. I tested negative a few days ago after a round of Dificid. They said they might retest to be sure in a couple of more weeks. This had consumed me. My last relapse sent me to the hospital in a ambulance. I’m down to 85 pounds. The dr said it could be up to a year before normal comes again & it might never. I’m very distressed

@ sue6408. I’m wonder the same thing. I relapsed 3 times since October. I finally tested negative last week. I failed Flagyl 2 times & vancomycin once. Them finally Dificid gave me a negative. They said it might come back though or it could be a false negative since my specimen was partially formed. Anyway I’m still cramping lots in spite of the anti spasmodic med. a couple of days ago as soon as I ate I would cramp & be in the bathroom with diarrhea within 30 minutes. Now I haven’t been in 2 days. After I finished the Dificid I went 5 days so they gave me fibercon. That was all good for about 3 days & then I was going at least. 6 times a day. One night I cramped so bad I didn’t get any sleep at all. I am only eating soft foods at the moment. That’s what my GI told me to do I’m down to 85 pounds so I need to be able to gain back my 20 pounds. I’m very overwhelmed by all this. My GI said it might be a year or I could never be the same. They called it post infection IBS.

I’m 26 days post Dificid. So far no relapse, but I had a scare lady night. I had a watery stool once , but I haven’t had any like that. I’ve had cramping during this time also. I see my GI Tuesday Unless get worse before then. I’m sure anxious. I’m going to ask for a retest. I hope you do well @pines

@ethanethanmcconkey When you moved my post I can never find it unless I move to lots of different places. If I can’t find it then I can’t get any use of it.

I’m not so good at the moment. I got a bad case of Cdiff after taking clindamycin. I e relapsed 3 times. Right now I’m better I think. I failed Flagyl & vancomycin. They have me Dificid & I’m 16 days off of it. I’m hoping I’m ok. If not I’ll ha d to have the FMT. That has had an impact on my emotional health. Mo far my heart & meds have been mostly ok I’m just happy to have good DRs.

I’ve had 3 major abdominal surgeries when I was young. I’m having lots of stomach issues. I have colon problems but they haven’t said anything about an obstruction or anything. I am fighting Cdiff now from taking antibiotics for a sinus infection. I could be facing a fecal implant if I relapse again. I just wondered if an obstruction could show op on an MRI.

How did they diagnose you before surgery. Did it show up on a ct or MRI ?
