I currently have c difficile (c diff for short) you can look it up on google from taking antibiotics following the removal of kidney stones. I was only on the antibiotics for 2 days. C diff is infectious colitis. I had a subtotal last July and have about 2 inches of my colon left.
My symptoms started with pain on the right side of my abdomin with slight diarrhea and quickly progressed to severe pain, abdominal bloating and severe diarrhea (over 20 x's a day that was complete liquid).
If your sypmtoms get worse, get to a hospital asap and have cultures done for this infection. It is very painful and can take a long time to heal. I spent 5 days in the hospital in isolation because it is contagious and am now on my second round of antibiotics to try to clear it up; this new med cost $8,000. and I'm taking it for 5 weeks. I continue to have diarrhea after anything I eat, so as you can see it isn't easy to clear up and it isn't something that should be taken lightly.
My kidney dr down played my symptoms for 3 days and then called me & told me they needed to remove the rest of my colon and give me a permanent bag, so please, please if you aren't feeling well insist that your dr see you and do testing.
I don't want to scare you but I don't want anyone to go through what I am.
I wish you the best and I hope you feel better,
