C diff tummy bug

Posted by

Hi all .... just on the off chance , did anyone get the c diff tummy bug/diarhea during their treatment? 

I am on day 6 of antibiotics.... I'm also neutropenic, and it has not improved.  Is this normal after 6 days of antibiotics, for it to still be here? 

Many thanks

Not me Jalola but a day or so before your course of Antibiotics are finishing call your Cancer Nurse and tell them.

Remember you body is all over the shop and as your immune system is not functioning that well some Antibiotics will just not do the job.

I did have Helicobacter Pylori, a bacteria that developed ulcers and stomach inflammation and the 3 pack antibiotics I was given for the HP were horrendous and put me in bed for a week..... but eventually it come ok xx
