I unfortunately have had cdiff four times in the past year. It’s not too much fun. The first time I was diagnosed I thought I was just having a very bad uc flare. Well lucky for me I was dead wrong.
The pain is absolutely horrible. That and the fact you have to use the bathroom soo often. The doctors put me on flags the first time but that gave me even worse pain. Turned out that Flagyl gave me pancreatitis. I ended up in the hospital for four days due to that. I ended up taking vancomycin and probiotics which finally got rid of it.
I now take probiotics daily to prevent it. The money spent is well worth not having to bleach my toilette after every use and feeling horrible pain
