I think when I had it (back when I had UC) they put my on Fagyl first bc it was cheaper for insurance to cover, and when that didn’t work, they bumped me up to Vanco which worked like a dream.
I think you should be feeling better already :/ You’re probably dehydrated at this point as well...
As far as how do you get it, anyone can get it. I think since at the time, I was on azathioprine, my immune system was compromised and made me more susceptible to infection. Older people and younger people, who have compromised immune systems are more likely to get it. Other people who may test positive c diff may have it in their body but their body is strong enough to fight it. It’s just one of those fluke things, unfortunately. Bad luck on my part.
I hope they figure it out and you’re feeling better very soon!
