Dec 22, 2019 · Life after C. difficile

I got C Diff after taking the drug Cipro. It is causing a drug resistance and is horrible. They put me on Vancomicin which made it worse and gives you a chance of relapse. I begged for a prescription of Dificid (Fidaxomicin) which is very expensive but worth it. So far after 5 weeks, no relapse! The hospitals don't want to use Dificid because of the cost, but it is the gold standard. Everything else is harming people!!!!
