Jul 31, 2012 · C-Diff in Infectious Diseases

After suffering from Cipro induced c-diff for two years, and I mean suffering and almost dying twice, I finally convinced my Dr. to do a fecal transplant. My granddaughter was the donor, she went on a simple diet for a week- she ate nothing that could not pass between the times of a fork, and my Dr. used a sigmoidoscope to place the sample in my colon. I was cured overnight. Simple, cheap and effective.

Jul 31, 2012 · I have a pacemaker installed because of sudden cardiac death caused by in Just Want to Talk

I have a pacemaker installed because of sudden cardiac death caused by antibiotic induced c-diff. It paces at 100% on the ventricular lead and 20% on the aerial lead. I have severe fatigue and shortness of breath with any activity, yet my cardiologist says there is nothing wrong, I do not have a blockage only slightly elevated blood pressure. I sufferered with the c-diff for two years until my gastroenterologist finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. I was cured overnight. But, I still have the cronic fatigue and restlessness even though they say I am OK and can’t find anything wrong. I also get electric shock type pains in my left chest area that really hurt. Again the Dr. says there is nothing wrong. I feel like an idiot to complain but I am sure this can’t be right. Any ideas anyone? @michelecooper75

Get your Dr. to stop the ciprocin. It causes C- Diff.

Nov 5, 2011 · Clostridium Difficile Colitis in Digestive Health

Yes. I’ve had this for 2 years. After the xifaxan, my Dr. wants to do a fecal transplant if the xifaxan doesn’t work. I have 3 days left to take the xifaxan. I feel pretty good actually. Better than I have felt in 2 years! Vancomycin did nothing for me.4 or 5 days after a long pulsing dose, I’d start with the mucous again. I an praying that the xifaxan will do the trick. Oh, I got it from a course of Cipro, killed all the good bacteria, lowered my potassium level and stopped my heart. So I now have a pacemaker to control the destroyed ventrical of my heart . Great right? I am however among the lucky 2% who survive ventricular fibrillation. So for that I am truly grateful.

Nov 5, 2011 · cyclic vomiting syndrome in Digestive Health

My 35 year old daughter has this and the Dr. treated her for h pylorie . That is a type of bacteria that causes ulcers. She has not had an attack in 2 months which is wonderful as she gets sick for 4 or
5 days and always has to go to the hospital for IV fluids as she gets dehydrated from the constant violent reaching. I’m sorry your girl has this. It is terrible watching them be so ill and be so helpless to fix it.
