As I mentioned in a previous post, after this long battle with C. Diff, I was referred to the ID doctors. That was on Wednesday.
After seeing the fellow and then speaking to the main doctor about my symptoms, the doctor decided that I should be on vancocin, or vancomycin.
The upside to this medication is that it doesn’t leave that awful, weird, metallic aftertaste in my mouth like the flagyl did. The downside is the fact that I had to take flagyl 3 times a day, whereas I have to take vancocin 4 times a day. It’s difficult to remember. I’m going to have to develop some sort of system to help me remember to take my medication 4 times a day for the next 10 days or so. I will return to see the specialist on the Wednesday after next, as that will be two weeks since I’ve been on this new medication. Gosh I hope it works.
Yesterday, my family and I went to The Keg for my mom’s birthday dinner. When my meal arrived, I ate 2 bites…and felt sick to my stomach. I seriously cannot wait for my body to be rid of this stupid bug!
