Hello. I was diagnosed with C-diff and hospitalized for 9 days back in Feb. Diagnosis was C-diff colitis ..My bowels have not been normal since I had this. They tell me the C- diff is gone, but I can still smell the smell of it in my bowel movements, and in my sweat. Just sitting around and doing nothing sometimes, I can smell the same scent. I worked in the laundry of a nursing home when I got this, and the smell from the clothing of the infected residents is the same smell I can smell on me. Please has anyone encountered this? My Dr. seems to think it's all in my head. I know it isn't .View Thread
