Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
From your X-ray results, it is suspected that you have pulmonary TB (pulmonary tuberculosis) with complications. Namely pleurisy or lung sheath infection caused by the spread of tuberculosis bacteria from the lungs.
We need to make sure, is the treatment you have been living for a year a treatment for pulmonary TB?
If so, then you should go back to consult a doctor who handles your illness for a year. Because, the results of your chest X-rays need to be compared with chest X-rays before and during treatment. In addition, a clinical review needs to be carried out. Where your previous clinical data is only available to the doctor who treated you before. So that clinical data can be compared with current clinical conditions. In addition, doctors also need to re-examine sputum or sputum smear.
If from the results of a review of the treatment of pulmonary TB that you have been undergoing for a year it is concluded experiencing treatment failure, then the doctor needs to find out the cause of the failure occurred. Because failure could occur due to your negligence in taking drugs or due to tuberculosis bacteria that attack you are already resistant to the drugs given or due to lack of dosage of drugs given or due to the presence of other diseases that inhibit your healing (chronic diseases such as diabetes or systemic diseases) immune system like HIV).
However, if the treatment you have been taking for the previous year is not a medical treatment for pulmonary TB cases, then you will start pulmonary TB treatment as soon as possible. The duration and type of treatment will be adjusted by your doctor to your clinical condition. The doctor will evaluate the treatment every 2 weeks. If it is true that your disease is pulmonary TB, then you will experience improvement within one month of treatment. However, treatment must continue until completion, which is at least 6 months. So that bacteria disappear from your body completely.
Thus hopefully useful.
