How long to recover.

I contracted syphilis 4 months ago.  I was treated for the infection using two huge syringes of the approved form of Bicilin.  I had been suffering from feelings of fatigue and slightly enlarged lymph nodes. I also had a small sore on my penis and a slight rash.  I tested negative for HIV, I waited three months after the encounter to take the HIV test in order for an accurate result.  The doctor said the symptoms were common for a syphilis infection and I tested positive for syphilis.

The question:  How long does it take for the symptoms to go away?  I recieved my injection of Biclin 4 days ago.  I like to exercise.  When will I be back to my old energetic self?
