Feeling great 15 weeks post infection AND 3 weeks after a couse of Z-pack

Postby Amanda » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:50 pm

I’m a 50yo female who developed cdiff infection after an appendectomy via laparoscopy and 12 days of Cipro+Flagyl. Was treated with Flagyl (10 days), had a lot of PI-IBS and had to extract a tooth with bone grafting under antibiotics 12 weeks into recovery. I took a full course of Z-pack, which was selected for being less of an offender than clindamycin. I’m now 15 weeks after Flagyl and 3 weeks after Z-pack, and I feel great. This is what has worked for mein the recovery path, hopefully someone will benefit from reading this:
- Florastor 2x 250mg/day (and 4x 250mg/day during and 2 weeks after Z-pack)
- Kefir 2x 6oz/day
- Chicken bone broth 2x 8oz/day
- 2 cooked apples/day
- no gluten, diary or added sugar
- reintroduction of one type of food every 3 days
Sticking to the above made me feel better every day, both physically and emotionally. I feel much better than before c-diff!
Good luck everyone. You will beat this infection!
