So I have c. diff. Confirmed this morning. Since I'm pregnant he wants to take the most agressive approach and am being treated with vancomycin every 6 hours for 14 days. I asked about
taking a probitoic. HE said that he spoke with one of the doctors on staff who is a world reknowned regarding this disease. And he said that this doctor didn't seem to think there was much proof that probiotics did much of anything during treatment. I wondered if anyone else has dealt with this and what they did regarding taking a probiotic.
I've never had c. diff before and its honestly worse than any flare I have ever experienced. Wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy!
