Did you have the 2nd FMT? If so, it can take time. You just went through a prep and procedure, your GI should instruct you on diet he wants you to follow.
Hang in there, hopefully this is temporary

Do freak out when you are having a "off" day , stay calm , as long as D didn't hit you have nothing to worry about. As you know FMT is not a magic cure , you will still go trough the whole recovery process. Try to get help with the anxiety , anxiety will give you major IBS flares , controlling the anxiety will help your gut recover faster. For cramps you can use a heating pad or peppermint tea, it usually helps , or you can ask your doctor for antispasmodic medication. For gas you can try drinking 1-2 cups of fennel seed tea , it helped me very much when I was getting immensely bloated and gassy.

Lidia, after I had my FMT I had lots of crazy activity in my gut but no D. I mean noises, sensations, gas I've never experienced before. Some people have D, some people get C. Basically, you can have many varying symptoms but it still turn out and be a success. Make sure to eat prebiotic foods and fruits and vegetables to feed your new donor bacteria. Unless you end up with excessive D that is characteristic of C Diff, don't panic. Your symptoms don't mean it's not successful. Keep us posted on how you are doing! It is so scary I know. - Melanie
