I am going to boil all parts of my blender now. I will never be able to look at a brown concoction made in a blender the same way again.

OMG, I’ve read about this… it’s such a gross yet simple treatment.

Also, I don’t think I can use my blender for at least a month without remembering this. Thanks a lot!

OMG!  I actually got C. diff from taking too many antibiotics.  My doctor felt horrible!  But honestly, I would never do this fecal transplantation!  I don’t know anyone who would actually donate either!

Ugh that’s so gross!  Who would want someone else’s poo mixed with theirs?  Barf.

Ok geez anyone I know in real life who reads this will instantly identify me (if my ring and proposal story somehow didn’t already)… So I have guinea pigs, and they eat their own cecal matter (different from fecal matter… I swear!) and if you have a sick piggy you’re to try and get the cecal matter from a healthy one to feed to the sick one to replenish the balance in their intestines. So when fecal transplantation was mentioned one class (I’m a medical student), some people that knew about the guinea pig thing looked at me like I was a little less strange. And I looked at them like HA! THE PIGGIES ARE RIGHT! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecotrope for anyone who is super interested…

Everyone has the C – difficile bacteria in their system.  It is only when you get exposed to someone with an active case and your own good baterial numbers are down or you take antibiotics that kill the good bacteria in your system and the Cdif takes over and overpowers.  This is so serious.  My dad has been in and out of the hospital 5 times in the last year from this.  He gets so dehydrated and a couple of times we thought we were going to lose him from it.  When he’s home and on medication (which by the way was billed $2000 for a 6 week supply, he had insurance) my sister and I have to go in everyday and wash everything down with bleach.  Everything.  It is exhausting for everyone.  I’d donate and I’ll bet he would try it if he gets it again.  Right now he also takes 2 critical strength probiotics to replace the good bacteria each day. (He also has MS so his system is even more compromised than most.) Thanks for the information.

@EvaBostonTerrier: What’s the new drug for C. Diff? I’m in the CV-ICU right now, and like half of our patients are on C. Diff precautions, so something new might be worth a try.
