thanks jan.. i think i agree there is no clear answer.I have at this point chosen to stay on antibiotics. But interestingly enough i was doing so well last few years i have cut back on dosage just as an experiment and to my surprise where i i might have used 2 five hundred mil. of something i get by on one..I have done it rather arbitrarily so not sure i tried it for every one of the four i rotate but plan to do so more systematically. With that approach in mind i will probably then try missing a day every other day just to see.So in my case i feel comfortable with my choice right now.
I once took remade as a last resort when i had colitis it was not successful and so more concerned about trying an infusion type thing at this point. i prefer to think in the event things go south for me down the road i have that to try.What keeps me sane is thinking i have something i can try in the event of...Fortunately i have not had any incidence of c-diff in a very long time and if in event i need to take another antibiotic for something i just stop the one for pouchitis so not to push my luck..So far so good.
When i get more conclusive resumes that is something that works for everyone with few exceptions i will stay the course on anti biotics
