My treatment will last by the end of the May 2017.

I will be treated by the end of the May 2017.

I will be treated until the end of the May 2017.

If the bacteria doesn't get eradicated within the time span of eighteen months then the treatment can be "extended" or "streached" further.

Please check.

Okay the words are "Up to" and "Stretched". Sorry for the spellings.

If I have to say it in passive form then what is the way to do it?

I will be treated until May is incorrect, what is the correct way to say it?

Is there any way to correct my incorrect sentences?

"I will be treated until May" is incorrect. What is the correct way to say it?

You didn't give us "I will be treated until May" as a choice in post #1 and no one has commented on it before now, so what makes you think it's incorrect?

Okay so I can't say "Untill the end of May".

No, he deleted "... until the end of the May". The use of the article made the sentence incorrect.

I struck it out because you wrote 'the May'.

No, they're different tenses.

No. There are two words in your first example and three in your second example. How could they be interchangeable?

For example, in the following sentence you can't replace 'strike through' with 'strike it out':

'You need to strike through "bagpippes" as you've spelt it wrong'.

Can't we say you need to strike "bagpippes" out as you have misspelt it?
