Hi there, I am sorry to read that you lost your husband!
Nobody can tell for sure if the GBS was induced by C. difficile. It is not a regular complication of this infection.
We know that people got GBS after vaccinations or flu.We think it is triggered by a strained immune system. Since your husband'a immune system was not only strained by this infection but by his leukaemia and chemotherapy it will have been the combination of all that made GBS possible. I hope you can cope!
