Hi all, I started taking Metronidazole 500mg 1 tablet 3 times daily for 2 weeks when I tested positive for C-diff on the 20th Feb. On the 1st March I had an appointment in the GI clinic. Within a few minutes of seeing them an ambulance was ordered to take me in because two Dr's could not hear any bowel sounds. It was so fast and scary, I just spent 8 days in the hospital for this and I came out on Saturday 9th. I was ok leaving and felt I was going in the right direction, I asked before I left if we could test for C-diff again but was told once the antibiotics have finished then so has the C-diff. So I didn't think any thing else about it, that was until yesterday when my stomach became distended once again, and in and out of the bathroom many times. It does not matter what I eat or drink I have this pressure feeling that just gets so much worse when I try to eat and drink. When I have a MS flare I get that pressure feeling and know it isn't normal.
I was also told today that even if I had the C-diff test done again and it was positive again, it would not make any difference because the toxin would still be in the body and would still be positive. Is this true and does anyone know how long before being tested again before it becomes a true positive again.
Thanks, Liz.
