I hope you are doing better.
    You may just have IBS. C Diff wouldnít be likely if itís been two years since you were on the antibiotics. It can show up three months after antibiotics but most of the time itís either during the course of antibiotics or shortly after. I was doing better but have had diarrhea twice today so Iím getting a bit nervous again because the second time it was pretty watery and I noticed some blood when I wiped the first time. Didnít see it in the diarrhea so Iím hoping it was from either from my internal hemorrhoid or a fissure. If it continues Iíll try to get in with my rectal surgeon and see if I need get my stool tested. My regular GI doc didnít have any available appointments until February but in the past, my proctologist got me in pretty quick when I had blood. Still worry about infection and needing antibiotics, but find it strange that I was fine for a week then it hit again today. I can never pinpoint foods that give me diarrhea. I have been under a lot of stress so itís hard to tell sometimes if itís just stress related IBS or an illness! Ugh!

    I know I don't have Cdiff, I am thinking mine is lack of fiber, and or IBS, am going to start eating more fiber, I have barely had any at all, been eating junk, I hope you get answers, having stool issues is no fun. Have you been checked for Chrons?

    Thanks Nicola! Iíve let my mind create so many worst case scenarios this afternoon that itís unreal. Canít believe Iím letting the HA beast rear its head. Just discouraged today after having watery D again, since I was having a pretty good week. It feels like my guts are just gassy, bloated and inflamed. I tell myself it can just be IBS and the blood was from my hemorrhoid but it looked sort of mixed in with the poo on my toilet paper. So again HA is just pissing me off! I was doing so well until the last few weeks when I got sick. I havenít had any fever but I donít know if certain bowel infections like E Coli, Salmonella, etc. can come and go and not cause fever or if they would be persistent? I refuse to google though! Iím trying my best to practice what I preach. Thanks again!
