I finished the antibiotics. One of my tests was done prior to being on them and the second was done while on them. My last scope was done in August. They didn't see the c-diff then, but I ended up with it a few weeks later. (Maybe I got it during the scope???)
When I had c-diff the test in the hospital took a couple of days to get results back. This time, however, both tests were back much quicker, so I can't help but wonder if one type of test is more accurate, especially if the infection is in the mild stages. I guess I'm having some denial that my cd is really changing and going to give me more trouble than it used to.
I just don't want to be a guinea pig with all these harsher meds if it's something that an antibiotic would cure. Last year I was sick for months and only got better once we got the c-diff battled, so in my mind I'm worried that's what is happening again. Unfortunately my "better" only lasted 4 months.
Artist guy, I wouldn't mind the no appetite since I am overweight. I don't remember any problems when I was on it for a week before, but they said it takes a few months before it works anyway. Good luck with you new adventure. That's great if you get to do something you really enjoy.
