I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
The answer is yes likely you are contagious.
C diff did not clear completely causing recurrent infections.
This can remain dormant in between the attacks but you can still shed the bacteria in the stool.
So without proper hand washing or sharing towels, utensils, food, can pose a risk for transmission to people with weak immune system.
Once you are symptom free for more than two weeks and documented by 2 negative stool tests, you are considered safe.
You should consider oral vancomycin tablets twice daily for 2 weeks for complete clearance.
Oral fidomamycin is another good option in case of resistant c diff infection.
Please cosult with a gastroenterologist.
