I have been on Vancomycin 250mg 4x per day for about 30 days for Cdiff. Today is my last day. My GI didn't tell me to taper off, but I have read online that people taper off of it. Is that always necessary?
Also, as some of you know, I have been having severe rectal pain for the past couple months. Since I've been on the Vanco, the pain has lessened a bit. My GI kept me on Vanco because the pain has gotten better since I've been taking it, but my CRS said the Vanco had nothing to do with my rectum feeling better. Keep in mind, neither Dr know what's going on with me. I did not have any D before I developed cdiff and then I only had it for a couple days until the Vanco kicked in.
So my question is, could the Vanco have anything to do with my rectal pain feeling better? I am getting 2 different opinions from my doctors.
