conventional medicine that they would never bring up fecal transplants. They were saying it's a great treatment for C. Diff and hope that it will be used as a first consideration instead of a last resort. I was just so happy they talked about
it (even if it wasn't colitis-related) and I called my mom! haha I was like "yeah, other people's poop can heal you!" My mom only believes/considers treatments that "real" doctors would use so I just had to tell her all about
