Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand the concerns and anxieties that you feel. Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis and can attack various parts of the body, ranging from the lungs, brain, breast, intestine, glands, and bones. If TB has been diagnosed, the sufferer must take the drug for a minimum period of 6 months, depending on the type of tuberculosis.
To diagnose TB, there are various kinds of tests that must be done, ranging from digging history, physical examination, x-rays, sputum test, blood test, and Mantoux test. To be diagnosed with TB in the end, in practice it is not always the results that must all support. For example, the sputum test is negative, but the x-rays are positive and from the results of historical excavations, the person is at high risk of developing TB, such as living in slums, having low endurance, suffering from HIV or undergoing chemotherapy, living with a person suspected of suffering TB, poor home circulation, long coughing, weight loss for no apparent reason and so on, treatment can still be carried out. As for the result of sputum which is negative, for example, it could be due to inaccurate sputum collection methods, such as sputum not coming out or the like.
Then in your case, even though you should use all kinds of TB drugs to kill the bacteria in your body, if in fact you are allergic to one component of the drug, the drug should not be used. This might have an impact on longer treatment, but you can still recover in this way. Then for the lump, this also has to be seen again, whether it is really related to the TB or not. This you can ask at your next meeting with your doctor.
For the change of the doctor itself, it's best if one patient is treated by one doctor who knows how it is progressing. However, because this is more related to the policy of the hospital where you are seeking treatment, we recommend that you try to correct this with the hospital, whether you can choose to seek treatment from a doctor who is already aware of the development of your current condition.
Finally, there are no special restrictions for TB sufferers to consume anything. What needs to be prioritized is healthy foods such as vegetables and fruit, drink plenty of water, avoid cigarette smoke and pollution, take regular medication as directed, do not increase, reduce, change the dose without doctor's approval, and control routine. So, hopefully answering your question.
