Do let usknow what the con says about the phage therapy. I had a letter from my con yesterday( copied to my GP) to say that following a conversation with me she is discussing this with her colleagues as of course, it is not licensed in this country.

Update on Pnemonia and consultant

I have seen consultant and they have found a bug in my blood culture keeping me in to continue intravenous antibiotics.

I have had a conversation with consultant about phage therapy he had not heard of it.

I asked to email him information about lhage and he has agreed. RESULT !

I asked if I could trial it in uk .fingers crossed x
