PATIENTSPIDERS, in reference to your last comment "Re: the C-Diff test -
I was tested in January and the sample turned up "negative" for C-Diff. I did NOT however, have to refrigerate the sample. From what I've read, that can cause a mis-read. Did you have to refrigerate your sample for the C-Diff?"
All of my previous tests came back negative also. This time I was told to keep it frozen. Evidently the bug starts breaking down if not kept frozen. As your doc about that.
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum. Currently have C-Diff.
