I just got diagnosed with c-diff again

Postby Renny » Sun Jul 04, 2021 11:02 am

I just got diagnosed with c-diff for the third time in 14 months. I have not been on antibiotics, steroids, or PPI. My main symptom is FATIGUE and intermittent diarrhea and stomach cramping. My diarrhea was never watery like it was before. It was loose and yellow. I am trying to get FMT. My G.I. doctors are out for the holiday weekend. If the doctors do not do FMT in my town were do I find the list of G.I. doctors that do FMT?

Hello and Welcome to the site. Please read the first thread for all new posters

You don't mention the medications you have been on or for what period. If you GI does not do FMT, I am sure they can refer you to another GI who does do them

Have you tested positive? I mention this because many of us have Post IBS following treatment. The other thing I wanted to mention is DIficid. Have you tried it? This is the only medication that has worked for me.

If you feel your GI is not current on CDIFF, you may also consider seeing a ID specialist.

Hope you feel better soon
