Avoiding C-diff... Help!

Due to surgery, I was on a massive dose of cephalexin (2000 mg/day for over 2 weeks). Besides eating yogurt, is there anything I can do to avoid getting C-diff?

Thanks!

Try taking a stronger probiotic 3 times a day. Wash your hands every time you use the bathroom and make sure anyone who is caring for you washes their hands before after caring for you. Hand sanitizer gel doesn't kill C-diff !
