My ds got c diff and then I caught it from him. Flagyl made both of us even sicker. I spoke to the compounding pharmacist who said that he had seen a lot of cancer patients have success with a probiotic called VSL#2 or 3...I can look it up if you are interested.
We were told flagyl and then vancomycin IV.
The VSL worked very quickly. When he had a recurrence, it worked well again.
C. diff feels soooo horrid.

My guess is that I was given erroneous information or that the IV vanc was to treat something systemic in addition to the c. diff.
Emily, are you at a children's hospital? I'm surprised that they are surprised b/c I was told it is quite common among kids who are frequently on antibiotics, or even just one exposure.
We were at a children's hospital but they have VERY low rate of c-diff. They've only had one case in the last 6mos other than Dakota.
