Stool after fmt part 2

Postby kanak » Tue Dec 12, 2017 7:21 pm

I m now 10 days out from 2nd fmt and 13 days off vanco. Profuse diarrhea ans mucous only. 8 times yesterday and 8 times already today. At this point I am so empty there isn't any stool left just dark mucous.
Unable to eat, nauseous, and dry heaves. Have appt tomorrow and they want to do pcr test. I will barely he at the 14 day mark after vanco stopped. This scares the hell out of me as in the past it takes 20-30 days for me to test positive after treatment. Loose stool I could handle, debilitating leave me on the floor stool is not normal.

That sounds like a relapse.

Roy, do you think 14 days is far enough off vanco to get an accurate result? I did have colon prep and fmt, so they wiped out everything.

If there's enough toxin to cause symptoms it will be detected so yes a test should be acurate.
