I see. Well, I think either option -- trying Dificid for 10-14 days or just going for the FMT -- will be fine. Sorry you are in this position! I am sure they will give you a xanax or whatever for the scope again. Are you going to be prepping in the hospital or at home (if you go this route)? I was confused because you said they'd have you give a stool sample at the hospital. I've honestly heard nothing but good things about
FMT for c diff. Maybe you should just trust your doctor on this one and make the decision easier on yourself.
Btw, that's the same thing that happened to me with campylobacter. I'd feel better while on antibiotics and get worse again after getting off of them. My doctor was convinced something in my house was reinfected me (my water, my cat's poop), but it wasn't! Eventually, he gave me a different antibiotic and it cured it.
