Thanks for your suggestions Kathleen! I am actually calling my gastro on Monday. I haven't been tested for C. Diff yet, so I am going to request that my gastro take a further look into the issue. I'm willing to take more antibiotics, as long as it prevents the problem from getting worse. The only issue I can foresee in the future is tooth problem. I am praying that my dentist doesn't do any work that requires antibiotics... I'm not sure if C. Diff antibiotics would be able to treat my tooth issue if I have to have a root canal, etc.
Unfortunately when you have C. diff you do need to take the right antibiotics (specific for C diff overgrowth) that can kill it off so you can get the good guys going again in there.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/c-difficile/DS00736/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs has the drugs you should be on to treat the C. diff. Yogurt alone is unlikely to be enough by itself.I'm sorry the doctor doesn't seem to be treating you properly, is there a way for you to transfer to another doctor?
