Thu, Sep 12 9:39am · C. difficile -are your guts ever normal again ? in Digestive Health

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?

@sandyabbey , I still see your post from this morning..Not sure why you can't.

@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….

I finished dificid on Friday the 15th and I'm back to having symptoms..Mainly just going multiple times a day. I have been nauseated, broke out with a rash on my face yesterday, I'm just thinking it is not really gone….Not sure what my next step will be – referral to GI and go from there I guess. So frustrating!!!! I just wonder what it would be like to go through a day and not be sick to stomach!
