Whoa, jk, that is really scary. I had c-diff at one point but it really wasn't severe -- and it hasn't come back, thank god. Actually, you know, I'm not entirely sure I had it, because I never got tested for it. I just had consistent diarrhea for several weeks, so my LLMD presumed I might have it and prescribed flagyl. It took a week or two to work, but then I got better.
ktbk1, good luck with your probiotics, and let us know what happens. Oh, a really powerful probiotic for combating the onset of c-diff is saccharomyces boulardii. It is not in most probiotics and it is very expensive. I found it in one brand of probiotics they have at whole foods, and the bottle of pills cost about fifty bucks.
