Advanced Solution For Bone TB In Long Bones Not Spine (Legbones)?
Greetings, u003cbr / u003e u003cbr / u003e
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, do you really have pulmonary tuberculosis? Are you undergoing further tests to find out if your tuberculosis bacteria has drug resistance? Have you received category 2 medication?
Basically tuberculosis wherever it is located (lung, bone, gland, intestine, lining of the brain, etc.), the treatment is the same, namely antituberculosis drugs. The duration of treatment is also largely the same, which is a minimum of 6 months, but can also be longer. In general, if you experience treatment failure (meaning that the tuberculosis bacteria is still found at the end of your treatment period), then your doctor will test antibiotic resistance and evaluate whether or not other types of antituberculosis drugs are needed.
You should ask your pulmonary doctor again about the treatment for tuberculosis that you need to take in the future (including how long you should take your medication, whether there is a plan for further examinations, referral to a bone doctor for the management of advanced bone tuberculosis). If indeed your doctor does not provide a definite answer for you, try to ask for opinions from other lung specialists (if you have pulmonary tuberculosis), or another bone doctor (if indeed you only have bone tuberculosis only). Tuberculosis cases fail treatment as you need specialist management (and also a more complete examination facility) so that treatment cannot be done only at a general practitioner.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
