I think that I OD on flaygl for treatment of h. pylori and that's how I ended up with UC (I didn't have c. diff). I had happened to me two times before when I was little and I think that was just too much for my immune system. H. pylori is no fun, neither are the ulcers associated with it...
Antibiotics are known to be hard on UCer colons. Any time I need to go on antibiotics for any reason, I hop on probiotics to replenish the good bacteria. Also, when I need to be on antitbiotics, I ask for z-pack. Z-pack won't kill h, pylori but if I have a sinus infection or anything like that I ask for z-pack. Just for reference :)
