I have to do a C Diff test and since my mom works at a hospital she was able to bring me the 2 containers for the stool samples. She read the instructions to me over the phone, I am one where I have to sit on a toilet to go...trouble with bed pans etc. I went to the local dollar store and bought an aluminum pan that would sit inside the bowl and some cat litter pan liners. I had to kind of mold the pan so it would fit under the seat. The method worked though and because of the bag it was easy to dispose of the unused poop. Granted I brought out the excess, aluminum pan and some additional bathroom trash I had right after. I am glad I had gloves at home, I did get a little on the gloves but better than my fingers.
Now my sample is waiting in their respective containers and luckily dont have to go in the fridge cuz that would gross me out and my hubby even more. Tomorrow I am going to meet her for lunch and drop off the sample and the order for the test. How long does it typically take to get the results back?
