C Diff Not going anywhere

I have been On flaygel for about to months and still taking it.. Im still experiencing the same problems. My problems are funny texture stool. I can see all my food I eat in my stool. I told my doctor she said it normal.. Im losing weight. I dont know if its because my eating habits change.  This is really bothering me.. I caught c diff because I was on Antibotics for 2 months. Im still nausated on the meds. my doc is no help. I was wondering If I can take a proboictic with this.

Hi,
If colonoscopy was not done before it may be done for evaluation.

Nausea could be due to flagyl. There is no need to take Flagyl for such a long time.

Stool test may be done for confirming Cdiff infection. In 20% of cases there will be recurrence in which case vancomycin is needed for treatment.
Adding probiotics would be helpful.
