I have been diagnosed with C Diff. After nearly two

I have been diagnosed with C Diff. After nearly two and a half months of severe diarea Doctors put me on Vancomyacine. It did not work. We consulted carefully and decided to have a fecal transplant. That was 10 days ago and I have improved greatly, but still have a ways to go. I am no longer on any anti biotic, but am on an almost impossible Glutin free, Dairy free diet. I need a positive boost bad. Can I drink a glass of red wine each evening without setting every thing back again. Thank You very much Don

I had C-Diff in March. It was quite a severe case as the Dr. Said if I had not gotten to the hospital when I did I would have passed away in just a matter of about 48 hrs. I was In ICU for a while as well, left the hospital, home for a few days, an was right back in the hospital for another week. My question to you is, is my extreme exhaustion almost daily due to the C-Diff and my stomach issues feeling upset daily effecting my Barrett s from the C-Diff? I just never feel good or have any energy since I was so sick. Thank you, Sue

I was diagnosed with C Diff at the end of March. The doctor put me on Flagyl. After the course of that medication, I had the same symptoms beginning one week later. Then, I was put on Vancomycin for 10 days. Exactly one week later, the symptoms came back: diarrhea, low grade fever, cramping. I have since had two test for C Diff, both came back negative. Is it possible that the C diff is still there? Or am I dealing with something exactly the same... but different?

My grandma has been diagnosed with a stomach bug after 2 months of chronic diarrhea, they are calling it c-spiff (shortened version of the long name) and said it was highly contageous.She lost 15 pounds and had a cringing side pain every so often. Can you tell me the long name or if you have heard of it? Thank you.
