C. Diff Relapse #3

My son finished his Vancocin on Friday morning and by Friday afternoon things were looking loose again.  Today is Saturday and sure enough I am convinced that he still has C. diff. I called the on call doctor at the GI office and she said that since this will be his fourth time on medication for this, then he needs a special plan.  The plan could be pulsing Vancomycin or adding another drug.  I talked with another mom who has a son that suffered through this and she said that the pulsing worked for them.  Her son had to do 6 weeks of pulsing Vancomycin.  We will meet with the GI doctor on Monday to do a stool sample again.
