How long before stools turn solid after having C-Diff?

How long does it take for your body to return to normal after having a bad case of Pseudomembranous colitis (C-diff)?  How long before your stools are solid again?

Thanks

Hi,
How are you? Outlook for pseudomembranous colitis is good but infection may come back for some patients. Symptoms usually improve after 3 days of treatment. However, the length of time the body recovers is not  the same for all patients and depends on a variety of factors such as compliance to the prescription medicine to treat the condition, your medical history, presence of other medical conditions, the severity of symptoms and your over all health. Take care and do keep us posted.
