Don't be discouraged. They only repeated this 3 days??
Borody himself has said some UC patients take 30 +, so I personally
wouldn't expect great results with only 3 days treatment.
Don't get why they would administer probiotics either, they don't implant
according to Borody and sidney goldstein (infectious disease doctor in US)
That could do more harm than good.

I wouldn't trust that study either. Three days to combat bacteria when they recommend 10 days as a minimum for eating antibiotics?
Status: In remission since beginning of April 2012
Diet: No gluten, no starches and avoiding eating much sugar.
Medicine: Asacol 4x100 daily
FT: Performed Fecal Bacteriotherapy at home using my wife as donor starting the 29th of February for 27 days. Please see tinyurl.com/bw5fn8g for the procedure I used

There is also a very small number of participants in this study, only 5.
