Deep question: I am sorry to hear of your illness. This is a question best posed to the doctor who knows you and your entire case. S/he has been following you, and will be able to discuss the process with you. Even so, s/he will not be able to give you an exact time, and you may also rebound at least temporarily from what seems like worsening symptoms. Please know there is help at all stages of illness.
