I was diagnosed and treated for diverticulitis 12/31/12 with flagyl and augmentin. By mid-January I became much more ill with significant diarhhea, nausea, fever, and left lower quadrant pain. I was negative for c-diff 1/12/13 but tested positive 16 days later. I was prescribed a 14 day course of vancomycin. I have been taking florastor for weeks to hasten return of normal flora. Even after treatment diarhhea has been evident with extreme nausea on some days, and painful abdominal spasms. It seems now that colitis is being persistent. It has been an extrmely stressful time the last 2+ months treating these symptoms. I have never had GI issues before this. Is this the typical pattern people follow before they become well again?
