I have been diagnosed with C Diff on top of my other health conditions and I can honestly say I feel rotten. Yucky :/

Has anyone else had this?

Just looked it up and it sounds thoroughly nasty. But cureable.

Dark chocolate and red wine - bad for the teeth, great for the spirits.

Thank you for the support. Yes, its nasty and I feel nasty right now. It doesnt help with pre excisting health problems on top. I like the idea of chocolate, but im not a huge fan if the red wine I dont want to ruin my teeth now lol Thank you for making me smile with your suggested thoughts. Xx

Hi, if I was you I'd get a second opinion. Having witnessed how debilitating C-Diff can be, I would expect you to be very ill in bed, or in hospital. Immediate treatment with very strong drugs is essential. I'd also advise having some Pro-Biotics. It is also highly infectious, toilets have to be sanitised etc.

It's usually caused by having too many anti-biotics which kill off the good bacteria in your stomach or from being in contact with it.

This is a nasty bit... the smell from the poo is very strong a little like horse manure, and is a sure give away it is actually C-Diff.

Im not a Doctor, but like I say I have witnessed it first hand..

Hey you!

I have missed our chats. How are you ?

Thank you Allan. Your support is really appreciated. One thing after another at the moment. Yet i still keep fighting ( weirdly ) :/

I'm very ill at the moment. Its something getting in my way of trying to build on my portfolio yet i do want to shoot in my mind. My confidance is pretty awful right now I think its because i feel so ill and i cant do what i want to do!!

Thank you for posting on here. You can always message me - anytime

Hiya!

Thank you for messaging me on this post. its good to hear from someone who knows how ill you can get from C Diff!

I am on the strongest medication to get rid of the C Diff. My tempreture is sky high and i feel hot one minute shivery the next. i dont know what to do with myself :/ lol
The symptoms have been coming on slowly but surely. I have a pretty bad form of C Diff, My doctor doesnt want me to go in to hospital as i have other medical conditions that effect my immune system. they have also had to shut dowh some wards due to the vomitting bug :/
The medication is not helpingi dont think . i have been on them since last friday when i found out and was hoping to improve by now! i have noticed my temperature has got higher and the symptoms a bit more intense. I dont think there working so i will go back to the Doctor ( possibly call a Doctor out ) as i dont want to infect others with the C Diff. I'm very kind hearted and would hate to see someone get C Diff because of me
I think if the next step dont work. i will be most likely in Hospital on a drip for fluids lost etc .

I'm still determined to get better. i have lots to focus on, Even when im low i try to keep my spirits up. With the symptoms and other problems its causing to much fuss and aggrivates me as i just want to get on with things and move forward!! lol

Thank you for posting . Its nice to hear from you!

Take care now

xx

Hi

Not sure if this is live but it's worth investigating a faecal matter transplant, usually comes in tabs best going to a well renowned source/clinic.

Take care

Although not infectious, I am dealing with diverticulitis and rather unpleasant side effects of radiotherapy after prostate cancer, so I can only just begin to understand what you must be going through, with the added danger factor.
Here's hoping you make a full and speedy recovery.
