Kinda gross, but if it works...

Oh by the way, I'm from germany and I have never seen a square toilet before.

"I had to collect stool samples for five days prior to our leaving Toronto, and I collected it in an ice cream container and kept it in the fridge," said Sinukoff.

EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Interesting story - revolting concept! If it has helped some people - good for them - but EW!

ICE CREAM CONTAINER....

No ice cream for me tonight..

a process that involved getting the sample through airport security.

"My biggest fear was that my samples were not allowed to be frozen, so I had to take them as carry-on luggage in the airplane and I was terrified that I was going to be asked to have my luggage searched," she said.

I could understand that fear. :imbar

UMMM yes officer??? :p

that???:confused:

..that is a new flavor of non frozen ice cream....WANT TO TRY IT??????:D...yummy:rotfl:

Completely gross! But I have heard of it. Our Medical Director said that you get the good bacteria that is wiped out of your own intestinal tract that then allows the C-Diff to take over. But still.........YUCK!!

]I agree c BillboSN hopefully it will not become a nursing duty (although I can see it happening) because not many MD's want to do something like that and they don't want to spend that much time c the pt if they are awake. I can see some of the older MD's digging :lol2: their heels in at this idea.

W discussed this in class the other day! having seen 2 pts die from c diff recently I certainly would be open to this if I contracted c diif. I wish the docs would do this locally.

I have never seen a square toilet seat. Is that how they all are in Canada?

I thought the exact same thing when I saw that! That brings on a new meaning to "Dont be square!" :lol2:

It sounds extremely gross, but great if it works!

Acutally, my FIL builds high end houses (multi-million $$) here in the Twin Cities, and had a client order a square toilet just the last year.

The c-diff treatment concept certainly makes sense, but ewww... Talk about loving your sibling...
