04Has anyone who visited Columbus Isle in January or thereabouts had a stomach virus? My doctor just diagnosed me with C Diff. Because my diarrhea began right after my trip, my doctor thinks it probably originated there. I contacted Club Med about this last week before I knew it was C Diff, asking if they'd heard anything about stomach bugs going around at that time, and I've been told the response may take up to 8 weeks. They referred me to their insurance department (not sure what they have to do with stomach bugs; you'd think they'd refer me to the medical clinic at Columbus). They have not responded yet.
This is frustrating because I have been sick to my stomach for months and my OB blamed it on pregnancy. I finally saw a gastroenterologist who diagnosed me correctly. Fortunately it has, for the most part, been a more mild case of C Diff. Apparently it can kill you, so I feel lucky! If you had a stomach bug after visiting there, this may be what you have.
