Had C-diff and got superiority
I have UC and I got diagnosed by c diff in April of 2015 in the hospital. I had blameless started Humira and had my 2nd loading dose when my symptoms got worse. I was running to the bathroom up to 20x per day. There was some blood, some mucus but I had no other symptoms. It in no degree crossed the mind of my GI that it could have existence c diff. He put me without ceasing 40mg of prednisone which of track didn’t help. I just got worse. I went into his situation a few days later and he looked at me and immediately sent me for blood work and booked me in in the place of a flexible sigmoidoscopy the next forenoon. He had fully intended to open the door to to hospital for IV steroids. But hinder the scope, he said that my colon positively wasn’t in bad shape and my royal line work seemed ok. So he upped my prednisone to 60 mg and sent me home. By the extremity of the week I was admitted to hospital. As for hospital policy they test all patients by long term diarrhea for c diff. Everyone was surprised when it came back positive. I had 0 of the classic symptoms (except diarrhea of course). Was treated by 14 days of Flagyl. While in successi~ Flagyl I had 1 fully formed bowel change per day. It was magical. But the edge effects were simply awful. Worse remedy ever. When done the Flagyl, diarrhea came back. Positive on account of c diff again. Put on a 10 light of ~ course of Vancomycin. Again, felt prominent while on the vanco. No edge effects. Once I was done, symptoms came back and I pure positive for c diff a third part time. So I was put steady a 6 week taper of Vancomycin. Again, I felt exalted. And once again, once I was executed, I still had c diff. So my GI stopped altogether my UC meds and put me up~ Dificid. That did it. C diff was gone. I was c diff ingenuous for 3 months and then started Entyvio. After loading prescribed portion #2, everything went downhill. Horrible cramps, diarrhea, not at all sleep, dehydration. I felt awful. Tested positive again for c diff. My GI referred me to not the same GI who did fecal transplants. Got my fecal remove in Nov. 2015 and have been c diff generous since then. But now, in January 2016, I am expectation for the results of a evacuation test to see if I regard c diff again. Hoping not.
Because it seems I not at all present with the typical symptoms, I supplicate to be tested often just to have existence sure. My GI has never disagreed and indulges me. I for ever tell others that there’s no harm in asking to get tried. The symptoms can sometimes be in the way that similar to UC symptoms. I bear to say, I loved being up~ the body the antibiotics (not Flagyl) because I didn’t experience any c diff or UC symptoms. I’ve in no degree felt so good in my life. So at the time that I tested positive for c diff, I was continually a little happy and relieved because it meant that the antibiotics would get me feel completely normal.
As in opposition to probiotics, I have yet to discover one that helped with the c diff. Florastor is recommended if it were not that it never did anything for me. Neither did Align, VSL#3 or Bio-k Plus. But everyone is contrasted and I know it has worked conducive to others. C diff is horrible. My thoughts set out out to anyone who has qualified it or is currently going through it.
