So I was on cipro for 7 days for something unrelated to my j pouch. A few days after going off of it I started feeling bad. Urgency, liquid stool, abdominal pain, terrible spasms along with fatigue and nausea. Long story short, yesterday I tested positive for c diff. I’ve never had it before.
I did a search to find experiences, and it really scared me. It seems a lot of people had it when they still had their colon, and it was the beginning of the end for their colon. I sure hope this isn’t the beginning of the end for my pouch, my takedown was just 5 months ago today so it’s still fairy new. I’ve not had any issues so far aside from pelvic floor.
I just started my treatment last night (vancomycin 10 days and s boulardi) no improvement yet but I wouldn’t expect that. Has anyone had c diff in their pouch and actually cleared it up with antibiotics without recurrence? I’m really scared right now and that’s the last thing I need with how awful I’m already feeling
