A few weeks ago I was in the emergency room with severe vommiting and pain. The doctor told me that I had a kidney infection but was nervouse about putting me on anti-biotics given my recent case of c-diff. He ended up putting me on Macrobid. I saw my GI doc 2 days later she was happy thats what they put me on because it has a lower chance of the c-diff coming back. On the drive home from the c-diff the Emergency Room called they said that they "grew" the bacteria and that the Macobid would not help with the Kidney Infection. They called in another anti-biotic.
Today I went for a follow-up appointment to find out that the c-diff is back. Caused by the second anti-biotic... Cipro. My doctor was so mad that the ER called in Cipro. She said it was one of the worst anti-biotics for C-Diff.
Now I have 14 more days of Flagyl. My GI wont start me on the prednisone again until the c-diff is gone.
I feel like CRAP!! I cant continue going to the bathroom 20 times a day. What do I do to help the diarehhea? I am taking a probitic and am trying to limit my food intake - bland food only. How do I feel better? Its been 2 1/2 months and I cant see an end in sight.
I need help! My house is falling apart. My kids and husband are suffering... I think they are getting the raw end of the deal. How do I be happy and show them that I love them when I feel so bad.
I am new to having crohns and dont know much about the disease. Here are a few questions maybe someone has an answer.
Is it normal to get C-Diff?
Is is normal for Kidney/Bladder Infections?
Is it normal for Blood in my Stool?
Is it normal for my insides to feel like they are on fire?
Is is normal for tounge sores?
I feel like I am going crazy and hope someone out there has had similar things so I know I am not crazy? How do you deal with this disease emotionally?
