Went to my follow-up appointment on 6/04/08 to discuss the results of my Colonoscopy & Ultrasound - he took another stool sample to check for C-Diff and I received a call on 6/06/08 to tell me that the sample was positive for C-Diff - so now I am on Flagyl for 2 weeks!! ACK!!
Prior to all this - from 5/27 - 6/05 every other day - I was suffering from extremely BAD cramps, low grade fevers and bloody diarrhea - My GI Dr. acted very confused and didn't understand why I was in so much pain, "You only have a mild case of proctitis". (This really aggravated me - he tried to blame it on a Cyst he discovered on my right ovary after my ultrasound on 5/23). I had informed him that on 4/05 - 4/11 I had been on a very strong antibiotic for pneumonia and that he might need to know this information. He seemed that it wasn't very relevant information at the time - but decided that he would take another stool sample for C-Diff!!
GUESS WHAT!?! - It was positive!!!
I was taken off the Asacol caps (400mg) and was Rx'd Rowasa enemas nightly. - and was RX'd an Anti-Spasomtic med for the cramping.
I decided that I wasn't going to take either the Rowasa, the Asacol or the Anti-Spamotics - and ALL of my cramping, fevers, & diarrhea have completely stopped.
I have decided to seek a new GI closer to my home, current the one I attend is in Denton, TX and I live in Grand Prairie!!
Any recommendations for Physician in the Arlington, Texas or Grand Prairie, Texas areas - would be GREATLY Appreciated!!
