Remember that you asked for the description..................usually brown or normal color, diarrhea with some solid shreds, strong odor, different than just regular poop smell, or pseudomonas smell. Only verification can come from the lab that it exists, diagnosis cannot be made on looks or odor alone.
It's diarrhea, often mucus-like, almost like feces in aspic, in texture that has the smell of sour, diseased tissue (like you get when someone has a nasty decubitus). It can be green or brown. Patients with C-Diff usually have this diarrhea running out of them many times a day. Sometimes it's connected with stomach cramps.
i think i became sick after being in the same home with a baby suffering with this. every time the child pooped, we had to open the windows and doors the air was so toxic! the next evening, i felt very tired and retired early. (new years day evening) that night i began with diarrhea (no abdominal pain) progressing to violent emesis lasting most of the night. i was weak as a kitten for days after and very dehydrated. do you think there was a connection?
