What are the chances (%) of getting c diff if you're immunocompromised and you're prescribed clindamycin for a root canal? (can't take amoxicillin)
Somewhere 1-10% The risks ranges about 1-10% and i cannot tell you the exact percentage for your case, but current literature suggests this range. Probiotics use during and cont after antibiotic uses for few more days has been shown to reduce diarrhea/c. Diff infection rate. It is quite treatable and so if u get it, consult doc quickly and u will be treated accordingly. Good luck.
