Sun, Oct 27 7:43am · Fecal transplants and Crohn's disease in Digestive Health

Good morning!!! I heard that fecal transplants/implants can cause death? Also that they are either causing people to be miserable if not done correctly. Don't ask me where I heard it from, I remember it specifically, because the doctor was telling me when they were talking about it that it works very well there is not very many problems with it and then I read that. I was horrified!!! Didn't really make me want to have one if I ever had too. I have Recurring C-diff apparently its going to like my body and they were talking about doing that this past time if the last drug didn't work. Not to make anyone afraid of it, but you might want to do your research!!! There may not be a lot in this post but there is a lot out there

Yes I did… they told me you can go 20 years and still have a relapse. Its nasty stuff that lies dormant in your gastro intenstines and they just sit and wait for the perfect time to attack, maybe just so happened to be Keflex and apparently the was something in there already that was not happy either. So the 2 go hand in hand and boom there you have it the present of Cdiff… the gift that keeps on giving literally. It never goes away, don't think it does, it will get you at anytime. Obviously I am a prime example.

Had Cdiff for over one year back in 2011 I was in the hospital for 4 months and was very sick where I almost died. I went all that time up until July of this year I think it was with out having even a tad bit of the runs and then I took keflex for a cut on my head that wasn't a big deal. They sewed it up and it really didn't need an antibiotic. Then a couple days later there it was like a bad habit.

I also took Vanco for 6 weeks then we tried another 6 weeks and flagyl together which cleared it up. We didn't have to do Dificid, they were also talking about a poop transplant. I read up on those and they aren't very safe alot of people die from those which totally scared me and I read that after the fact. Keflex is on my no list of antibiotics thats a supposed cdiff starter. I went over a year the first time and I cried for and hour when I found out I had it the second time cause no one told me it stays in your system so it was a surprise to me. I hope you feel better soon!!

Oh and are you seeing a gastronolgist for your esophagitis? Have you had a colonoscopy and or and endoscopy? You need to see them you could get Barrets Syndrome which is pre-cancerous. I have that. Please get help!!!

Hi… That sounds familiar to me, yes indeed. I am so sorry this is happening to you. Is this your first go around with Cdiff? Are you seeing a Infectious Disease Doctor? Cause if you are I would search for a different one!!! You should of had a change a med or had a Poop Transplant by now. Did you tell your doctor that you still have the stabbing pain? You shouldn't have that and if you do it sounds almost like appendicitis? But I am no doctor, but I would definitely get to the ER and see if your appendix burst or what is going on…this is not something to mess with. Please go to the ER and keep us posted. Thank you

I have been on Dexilant for over a year, and I have not had any problems. I have had one episode of heartburn but that was my fault by missing the pill. So that tells you how well it works. What is this PPI that you all are talking about? I haven't heard about it at all from any doctor and I have 8, its kind of strange that not one of them have said anything.
