You might want to have your dr check you for the c difficile infection. This will cause abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, etc. Flagyl will take care of it but it can come back and sometimes need to be treated with vancomycin. If you have this and need to be treated with the vanco, you need to see your dr right away because when I had it I needed the tapered dose of vanco and it cost over $8000.
I hope you don't have it and that you feel better soon, but please talk to your dr about it because you can become extremely ill if you do have it.
For the c diff, you just need three separate stool samples and the lab will have the results in 24 to 48 hours. You might not even need 3 samples but I needed 3 for my last check to make sure I didn't have it again. If you call your dr on Mon you should have enough time if you can give the samples that day & he does a stat order; that way your ins. will still be in effect.
