Re: C-Diff

Any of the antibiotics can clear it up, but then you need to get it out of your gut also. So youneed to rplace the good bacteria in your intestine-I've had it and it isn't pleasant to deal with, The diahrhea is nasty and the odor is very distinctive. I don't want to go through that again thank you very much.. Sorry but it's all by script.

Re: C-Diff

My elderly mother had it after a hysterectomy and my husband had it after shoulder surgery. It's BAD. Flagyl and/or vancomycin are the drugs of choice, I believe. Taking probiotics in pill form and/or yogurt will speed your recovery. Watch for dehydration and malnutrition. This is serious stuff, so take care of yourself, please!
