I contracted schistosomiasis infection in Zimbabwe in September 2017. I was diagnosed and treated with praziquantel on May 1st 2018. I had instant and progressive improvement within 24 hours, but symptoms returned 13 days later and health continued to deteriorate. I was treated with praziquantel on June 10th 2018, had instant and progressive improvement, and again symptoms returned 14 days later. I am awaiting consultant hospital appointment scheduled on 26th July 2018.
