Has anyone had to contend with a c-diff infection? What were your symptoms? How do you think you got it? How did you get over it? How do you prevent it from recurring and spreading to family members? Also please let me know if/how it changed the stoma at all also? My son has been experiencing abdominal cramping for past two weeks, a visit to ER and blood work, stool sample, discovered C-diff infection. He's on flagyl now for 10 days. White spots on his stoma, stoma has gnarled appearance, it is also always very tight, cannot even get my skinny pinky through. The most recent bout of cramping has been 2 weeks, while the stoma has been like this for 6 months.
Son, age 9, diagnosed with UC age 4, no relief or at best temporary relief from conventional meds, probiotics, SCD, colectomy with perm. ileostomy 2007. Diagnosed with Crohn's 3/08. Currently on Remicade, fish oil supplements, daily multivitamin, Digestive Advantage chron's colitis formula has no effect, it's like spitting in the ocean.
