Bacteriophage intake and treatment progress
First week of treatment
My course of treatment was as follows: 5ml x2 per day. I took 5 bottles in total (each being 10ml of PYO bacteriophages) from the Eliava institute in Tbilisi, Georgia.
On the second day after taking the phages, my condition was already getting better. The fetid odor of the bacteria was gone the very next day. After about a week I started to regain my energy.
Month 1 to Month 3
I had taken all the phages I had and didn’t have any more to continue treatment. I noticed that every few days, the symptoms came back to then disappeared again (which I smelled my urine). I took Avirayur (herbal tablets) for several weeks, after which the bladder infection was gone.
Month 6 to Month 12
The bladder infection had been gone for 6 months after which it returned. I managed to get more phages, this time 10 bottles (each of 10ml), to continue treatment.
In my current state, I have no presence of a bladder infection (cystitis) and I have an overall better condition.
