Large stomach months after c. diff.

Postby avocado » Sat Apr 02, 2022 7:35 pm

Hello, I searched the posts for information on this, but didn't find anything so I'm posting. I'm a female in late 50s and was hospitalized with c. diff. (got it from antibiotic use) in the fall. After FMT cured my c. diff. in November 2021, my stomach is still enlarged. Not nearly as distended as it was during the active infection, but still larger than normal. Will my large stomach dissipate at some point? I also have very loose stools each day with lots of gas. I'm a petite woman but I now fart like a 200 pound guy! Has anyone else experienced this after being cured by FMT and did your stomach size and stools/gas go back to normal? Thanks!!

No one is supposed to answer in this forum. It is like a diary only for the poster, so I am pasting your post to the Questions about c diff forum where you will hopefully get some answers.
