Fecal transfer

Has anyone ever heard of a fecal transfer to solve C. difficile? I did eight weeks on Vancomycin without any good results. Apparently this procedure is done in Europe and in Canada, but here in the U.S. it is still a experimental procedure. I have no idea how long I've had the C-diff, but I think it's close to three years.

The donor was my wife who provided a speciman and then it was inserted into my bowel after they were cleansed. It was inserted through a colonoscopy tube and was hopefully taking over the bad bacteria from my wife's good bacteria right away.

I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of or had this done. If so, can you give me some account of the procedure you had done? Thanks.
