Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You will need to get another stool test for C diff toxins.

It may recur sometimes.

And another treatment with oral vancomycin an flagyl together may be needed after confirmation.

You should start a probiotic daily to restore intestinal microbial balance.

Culturelle digestive health twice daily should be good.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
