I had one in Feb of this year. I have not heard of them being that dangerous. Did the article say what caused the death?

@patts I’m so sorry you are still sick. I remember the feeling of “this is never going to go away!” I was so frustrated of feeling like the walking plague. My doc didn’t keep testing me. He went by my symptoms. I had 3 rounds of Vanco. My insurance wouldn’t cover Dificud. I had a FMT in Feb of this year and just now feel like I’m getting in a normal rhythm to some extent. I also have Crohns so it’s complicated. I want to give you some hope when you feel like you keep getting slammed! This group understands.
Those who are suffering from gas and bloating post c-Diff….. I’m trying this… I’m taking 100 mg stool softener every night as well as a gas-x every morning and night. My gastro prescribed Bentyl to take for the cramps. 10-20 mgs up to 4 times a day. It seems to be helping. Gas x has never helped me but I decided I was going to see. I also take 500 mg of Magnesium twice daily. Obviously, I am not having diarrhea again… 🤪. The first night I took the stool softener I had an accident in bed, so I had to play with the dose for awhile. I too am 47. 🙄
@pines I finally found Florastor but it has milk products in it like Align does. I’ve been on Culturelle. Perhaps a refrigerated one is best? I’m blessed in that I haven’t had the dramatic weight loss that you all have but this all aggravated my Crohns Disease and IBS! Has anyone heard of Triaminocine IM shots causing a recurrence or Prednisone? I may need to use one for another condition but I’m scared.
I was told to take Florastor or Culturelle but then I’ve heard the refrigerated ones are better. I have Crohns and all this has got my intestines all freaked out. I can’t eat fiber, yet I need it. I’ve been drinking a mix that has 4 servings of fruits and veggies and then drinking a tea called Smooth Move and so far that combo has helped (this week) anyway. 🤷🏼♀️
@sandyabbey I am so sorry to hear you suffer from diverticulosis/ litis..,, my MIL had CDiff 2 years ago and got it again in March this year. She never had the FMT. They think she got it again because some was still in the “pockets” of diverticulitis/losis and it festered there. I wonder what your doc suggests about preventing that? The good news is my MIL knew what it was this time and caught it. Actually, I knew what it was and reminded her and had family take her to the doc. She is better now!
