I had to contend with c.diff for 9 lovely days during my recovery. One thing that helped me was the Watermelon New Whey liquid protein shots. They don't list any lecithin or soy on the ingredient list, so they should be safe for you. Of course, you would always check with your nutritionist. They have 11 grams of protein per liquid ounce, so you can literally take it like a little dose of medicine. It tastes much better than medicine, but it is fairly strong and concentrated. If you add it to a glass of ice water, it is quite pleasant IMHO. When you graduate to having fruit in your diet, they are great in a fruit smoothie. They are conveniently packaged in test tube shaped vials, which do not require refrigeration, so they are great for travel. You can buy them individually at places like Vitamin Shoppe to try different flavors. I have tried many, and this was my fave.
One thing to consider asking your nutritionist... Since you do not have a soy allergy, you may be able to use products that have trace amounts of soy or lecithin. So many of them don't even contain soy, but they are "processed in a facility that processes soy ingredients." Making this distinction could open up more possibilities for you. Good luck to you.
You rest you rust.
