I’m 99% sure that the C-Diff is gone and I’m 100% happy about that. If you’ve had it before, you understand how horrible it is and if you haven’t, well, don’t get it. The fecal transplant, in that regard, was a success and totally worth it. Come on, FDA approve it! The other part of… Continue reading Down in the Dumps
