c-dif

Mom was diagnosed with c-dif almost a year ago. First the Dr. prescribed Flagyl, which didn't work, then we switched to Vancomycin, which also didn't work. So now she's back on Flagyl and taking a probiotic called Florastor. Also, her doctor prescribed Questran. Recently she had two weeks with no symptoms, but now it's back again. This is a terrible bacterial infection of the gut which causes severe diarhhea and stomach cramps. She has to stick to a bland diet and can't eat many of the foods she really prefers. This c-dif is taking away any quality of life she might be able to have, because she's afraid to leave the house for fear of an accident. Has anyone had success in treating this disease? Any ideas for keeping her diet interesting? She's having a hard time keeping weight on.
