When I went to my new Dr. a couple on Feb. 18, he ordered all my meds + vancomycin. I hate antibiotics, they always bother my stomach - so I didn't take them (filled rx, but didn't take) - he asked me at my one week follow-up and I told him I didn't want to, he explainned that even though my stool samples all came out normal, there is a 10% chance so please take...I still didn't, until I went to him again on Wednesday, he finally convinced me. Well...I have have a very good 2 days (only 3 soft BM's yesterday, 0 today, yes, 0...i haven't felt this well since January 15ish.
What does this mean, do I have c-diff? or does this clear other things? Or could it be the pred, Lialida, donnatol and vancomycin all combined?
