My husband is currently in the hospital because of his UC. Third time in the hosipital, 4 weeks total over the three times so far.
The doctors just diagnosed him with Clostridium difficile and I was wondering if anyone else had gotten this and what their experience was. They have moved him to a private room because from what I read this is contagious through fecal-oral transfer and people with lowered immune systems have a high risk of getting it.
I also thought it was interesting that on wikipedia it said that "C. difficile is the most significant cause of pseudomembranous colitis,a severe infection of the colon, often after normal gut flora is eradicated by the use of antibiotics." He just can't seem to get away from colitis...
I swear these hospitals and doctors are just making everything worse.
