Mon, Feb 3 8:01pm · C. difficile – Are your guts ever normal again? in Digestive Health

Good morning. I was diagnosed with c-diff yesterday, after about 8 months of symptoms, but i never went to the dr. I feel that i got it from all the UTIs that I have had. I have also had strep twice this last year. They started me on vanco 125 mg for 10 days. I've only taken two doses thus far. But I'm fearful of recovering and what damage I have caused to my gutt and colon. I am 46 and hate to think I have to deal with all the repercussions I've caused. I'm hoping this will heal me, then i need to go to Dr to find out why I am getting so many UTIs.. i haven't get cipro for them. I have had them bad enough they turned into a kidney infection. I appreciate all the stories and comments, helps to know I'm not alone.

I suffered with C-diff almost a whole year before finally being diagnosed. It took one round of vanco and one round of dificid. I finished that in February and have tested negative since. However, some days I'm sure it is back, then after several days, I feel better. It's been a constant roller coaster. I still bloat awful, it doesn't seem to matter what I eat, not eat or exercise. I am one of the few that gained over 15 pounds while suffering with it. I'm not sure why…I'm still lacking in energy and motivation…I'm wondering if something else is going on. I am 47 and have been very active and healthy up until this hit me.

@nettecook. I just turned 47, good health, the occasional UTI, and strep throat.

@annapocono I was just curious how you drink your kefir…I'm struggling trying to get it down. I also ordered miso – but to be honest, I don't even know what to do with it! About two weeks after I finished Dificid, I have become gassy, I know longer have D, and I got a negative test result, but I have the gas now that I didn't have before!

And I might add – I have a UTI presently to boot..

I am wondering if anyone has done an extended pulse on dificid? I know that everyone is different, but I have tried 10 days of vanco and 10 days of dificid only to have it return 10 days after last dose. I suffered with CDIFF for a full year before I went to receive treatment. I'm 47 and overall was healthy. I've heard pros and cons about FMT, I know that I do not want to take vanco again. Thoughts?

@pines @losthope My Dr. said Flagyl is no longer recommended. Nor is metroingel (SP??) She said vanco first, then vanco pulse taper, then dificid, but I talked her into skipping the pulse taper and going right to dificid, but I don't think it is gone yet…Not sure what now….
