Thank you so much shanor49 for sharing your story. This is the very point I wanted to make, and I am so very sorry for what you have been going through. I spent years of my life with intestinal problems mostly due to the severe colitis I developed from having C. diff three different times. As for your comment, cdmohatta, I am sure that most doctors are aware of antibiotic associated diarrhea. The problem is that they are not warning their patients, and do not seem to be screening carefully enough the benefits vs the risks for each patient in regards to that patient's need of the antibiotic, and the specific antibiotic itself.
