C. Diff and Postpartum

Postby Maryhelp » Wed Nov 19, 2014 12:17 am

I am a 27 year old female who delivered a baby in March 2014. After 2 weeks I was readdmited to hospital because I retained some of the placenta and had a infection I was giving germentine. After two more weeks I was back to hospital er room and even clyndmincyn and flygal to take together after about 5 days I stared to get cold and flue symptoms, cramping, abdominal pain, indigestion, heartburn, headachs, chills, and then D. I was tested for C. Diff and it came back negative! So for the next two months I was treated for IBS, vertigo and given anit D. Meds. Then I took Prozac because I was getting very down and anxious about havering C. Diff so I was tested again and it came back positive. Then the constipation started. I was given flygal which didn't make any improvement. 2 weeks of vanco, tapered vanco and then 10 days of difficir now waiting for test results to come back, depending on which I will receive FMT.
