I've had C-diff at least 3 times over the last 2 1/2 years; it seems to 'go away' only to return with each 'new' infection. Interestingly enough, I had no problems with it during my 6 months of chemotherapy, and, within days of ending chemo, it came back with a vengeance! Hospitalized,' medicated' and sent home ...a few days later received a letter from the Hospital reading 'oh we're so sorry you contracted Cdiff while in the hospital'....(No offer to reduce my bill I might add...)The "transplant" offer has been given but it is very expensive and nobody's health insurance will pay for the 'donor's side of the surgery and only part of the recipients. I am 69 years old and WAS looking to a longer life having come out of chemo...suggestions???
