I am in the middle of a bad flare up and my gi doc just emailed me that he wants to have some stool tests done for parasites, etc..because of my history of c.difficile infection. I dont' have cramping or pain however which is weird. I am also battling a bronchitis and/or sinus infection. I am very worried that I will need an antibiotic and I can't take any except for vancomycin without getting severe diarrhea. Has anyone else had this situation? If so, what antibiotic do they give you? I haven't slept at all last night as I am coughing so hard. I am so stressed over this!!! UGH!!
