I am not sure what your medical question is.
But at this point you should have another stool sample done.
This might not be C diff at all.
If it is C diff and you had flagyl twice, then you should now have vancomycin.
I suggest that you should be working with a GI doctor.
Hopefully as well you are up to date on colonoscopy.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
