C-Diff After Surgery for Intestinal Blockage with Crohn's Disease

Posted by Georgianna (TX) on 11/11/2022

Crohn's disease, had surgery for intestinal blockage, now have C-diff:

I have been through a series of antibiotics and the C-diff has not eased. What may I do to get back to a normal life? The doctors want to poke and pry and feed me more antibiotics. I would like something natural.

Georgianna,

When normal treatments fail to improve C-Diff, there are doctors who will perform Fecal Microbiota Transplantation(FMT) where they take the poop from a healthy and tested donor and specimen, for safety, and transplant it into the C-Diff patient and results have been very good. There are many studies confirming and supporting the effectiveness of FMT for C-Diff that is refractory to standard treatment, but doctors who are versed in FMT are few. Apparently your doctors do not perform and or are not well versed in its use. The following link may be helpful in helping you find a doctor in your area who will perform the FMT :

Good luck and please keep us updated on your progress.

If you need to see studies for FMT and C-Diff, let me know and I will post appropriate links to them.

I would avoid the antibiotics and go straight to fecal implant. We know that it works and we also know antibiotics cause issues.
