In September I was hospitalized because of c diff. They told me it would likely happen again. Last time I had been sick for awhile and found myself wondering if I had c diff for a long time and they assumed it was a cd flare. Now I am getting frequent loose bms/diarrhea and there is an odor I remember from when I had c diff. It just doesn't seem like a "normal" flare for me so I'm worried it's cd again. Can it start mildly like this? I have no fever or cramping or pain at this point. But whatever is happening is getting worse each day not better.
I also have to pay for any medical expenses until I reach my overly high deductible. Still paying off last year's unfortunately. Does anyone have any idea how much a c-diff test costs?
Has anyone had any luck heading an infection off without needing antibiotics if it's caught early? I have been taking culturelle since my last episode.
