Whoa. Fecal transplants. Check it out:
Today I had a patient who claimed to have been cured of c. diff by a fecal transplant. I didn’t believe it until I googled it, but it’s true. Doctors can really take donor poo, liquify it with saline and administer it to a patient via enema in order to restore healthy intestinal flora. Hmm. I wonder who thought that up, and how long it took for their colleagues to stop laughing and embrace the idea?
