So I got the call... test is negative!
I’m shocked but very happy. Looks like I’m dealing with post penicillin diarrhea and anxiety/panic.

Thank you for all of your responses and help. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without this forum.

Great news! That happened to my mom after taking antibiotics too. We thought her c diff was back, but it wasn't and the D and other symptoms went away, but it took a while.

Update: had a few good days now back to diarrhea and now upper abd pain. I also have chills but no fever. It’s hard to not spiral every time I get diarrhea but I feel like I’m not in the “clear” since I’m only 3 weeks post abx.

Advise?
