you can get "c-defficil" i think thats the way it's spelled? from the hospital that's what they thought i had because of bad diarrhea after gallbladder removel. u might need to get a endoscapy to see if it it c-def if u do they will prescibe antibiotic . if they do make sure to take probiotic as well so that your good intestinal will still keep working, that why so dr will tell u to eat yogart when on antibiotics. probiotics is better good luck
I am answering you a month after your post so I hope that you get this. If your doc suspects C diff, you do not need a colonsopy to determine if you in fact have it. C diff can be detected in the stool. So a "simple" stool sample can be taken and the lab can test it. No scope needed.
