My father has been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and crohns following a colon resection where he received 34 days of cipro. He has been admitted to the hospital 4 times in the last 3 months with dehydration, high fever >102, diarrhea. He tested negative for literally everything, c diff included. He was given his first remicade dose two weeks ago, better for two days, then back in the hospital for same symptoms. Now has a positive c diff culture. Oral vanco was begun two days ago, his doctor is discussing giving the second loading dose of remicade with an active c-diff infection. Is this recommended? No further fever, blood in stool, constant diarrhea. On azacol, steroids, and oral vanco currently.
