Brief Answer:
Management of C.difficle

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic,

It can take from few weeks to months to completely clear up the C.diff infection, depending on your general health.

Bloating and loose bowel movements are common while on antibiotics for treatment of C.diff.
Eating a healthy diet rich in fiber and probiotics can help relieve the symptoms. Include more fruits, vegetables and fiber-rich food like oats, XXXXXXX etc in your diet.

Avoid fatty fried spicy food.
Avoid processed sugars, carbonated sugary drinks.
Using low-fat dairy can also help.
