The core question for me was: is my wife still infectious, should I still be doing a bleach clean every day?

Wed, Jun 3 5:57pm · Wife has had C Diff since Feb: Is she still infectious? in Digestive Health

Hello, I am caregiver to my wife of 76, she has CFS, cognitgive decline and other issues. In February she had emergency surgery on her appendikx, which was trying to burst thru a hernia. Anyway, sent home with antibiotics, the next week chronic diarrhea…we get a stool sample, positive C Diff. she has had two courses of antibiotics, now there is less diarrhea, but many bowel movements a day, gut discomfort. She takes Florastor plus other probiotics. Our GP tells us she will always now test positive for CDiff, and because she has a compromised immune system her guts will never be “normal” again.

OK, we can accept that I guess, what I want to understand are two things if possible: is she still infectious, and what level of cleaning should I do in our apartment. At present I clean with a bleach solution any surfaces we share and the bathrooms. I wash the whole place with soap and water every few days…I am exhausted…
Any guidance much appreciated…
