Tue, Sep 17 6:35am · C. difficile -are your guts ever normal again ? in Digestive Health

@annapocono I had the fmt in March of this year after having 4 relapses and hundreds of vancomycin that did nothing. I have not heard of anything negative about fmt and am glad I didn't hear this before I had it! I have been doing ok just scared of getting sick and needing an antibiotic! How did you hear about 2 people dying? And from what???

So, does anyone have an idea of what medication you will take if you need an antibiotic for an infection? The thought of getting sick this winter terrorizes me! I have been okay since my fmt back in March, but that was after 6 months of relapsing over and over again. The anxiety of getting cdiff again makes me lose my breath.

@annapocono If you don't mind me asking, what are the 3 risk factors of cdiff?

@pat70 I, also, was diagnosed with cdiff last September. After 8 days in the hospital and a loss of 14 lbs, I relapsed several times within 3 weeks after stopping vancomycin. In March of this year, I received an fmt and so far I am doing ok. Can't gain back any weight however. I had taken clindamycin for a tooth abscess and that is what caused the cdiff. I had never heard of it before either. It is a very serious colon infection. My advice is if you get any symptoms, get yourself to a gastro doctor pronto! Hopefully, you are one of the lucky ones who only gets sick once.

Thank you all for the input. I can definitely do bananas! I think I will take your advice, nurseheadakes, and visit a health food store! You all rock! Stay well!

@annapocono Also, all the probiotic foods you have mentioned, I do not eat! Not yogurt. So, I really don't know what to do about the probiotic I have been taking.

@annapocono I, too, have not been able to gain any weight since I got sick last September. I worry cause I only weigh 89lbs. and if I get sick, I will be in big trouble!

So, I have a question for everyone. My gastro doctor had told me on more than one occasion that it wasn't necessary to continue taking probiotics. I'm on the fence about this. I am doing ok (so far) since my fmt on March 22. Are any of you still taking probiotics?
