  • Is the stool hard or soft? My husband had the diaherrea for three straight weeks. It was so foul smelling. He had had an upper respiratory infection prior to this and was put on Amoxicillan. He finally went and got blood work and gave a stool sample. And it came back that he had C-Diff. It is an infection of the intestions caused by the use of the Antibiotic. He was miserable with horrible gas and foul smelling stool. With your past though, you may want to get it checked out. But I thought I might touch on the odor part.
