I’ve had cdiff earlier this year. Surgery is tomorrow. I’m worried this will trigger a relapse.

Is there anyone out there with cdiff preop or post op?

I have never had it myself, but had a friend with it after a big abdominal surgery. I would make sure to bring this up with your Dr. to ease your mind.

Get some Yakult! A study was done here at one of the big Universities and they found those drinking daily yakult or similar had a much lower incidence of c-diff. We started giving it to all our pre and post-op patients. Obvs you can't the first 2 days but I would def get it in once off clear fluids, everything crossed you don't get it again, hopefully, you won't have any antibiotics to start it off. Good Luck!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
