Hello Roni, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
TB. Lung is a pulmonary infectious disease caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is transmitted through droplets and if inhaled will be infected. Symptoms of pulmonary tuberculosis that are often felt are high fever, night sweats, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, weight loss, lack of appetite. Pulmonary TB must be treated routinely with OAT or anti-tuberculosis drugs which are usually given for 6 months.
TB healing period is different for each person and depends on the condition of the body and the severity of TB experienced. If you are not disciplined in taking medication, there will be a risk of side effects and complications of TB that will arise, for example bacteria will be resistant to drugs so that the symptoms will get worse and will be difficult to treat, and you will also be at risk of transmitting your TB disease to people around if you often forget to take medication.
You should consult the pulmonologist who treats you again, and if symptoms occur, coughing up recurrent blood, spasms, fever returns, go to your pulmonologist immediately.
