    Endured 6 episodes of C. Difficile since having shoulder replacement surgery. (Received Clindomycin post-op to prevent infection and it may have affected the flora in my gut) Took Flagyl 4 times and Vancomycin once. Dificid was the last resort before going to fecal transplant. That brings its own set of risks. Experienced no adverse side effects. Symptom free for 4 months, finally!
