How Long Does It Take To Treat Glandular TB?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask, this is me in the treatment phase for 8 months already taking tb gland medication, r nDid the gland tb disease be declared fully recovered if taking the drug as recommended by the doctor?
You do not need to worry, because glandular TB can still be cured with anti-tuberculosis drugs (OAT), provided you consume OAT routinely as directed by your doctor, and also maintain health by consuming balanced nutritious food, rest and adequate sleep (8 hours / day), exercise regularly, and manage stressful thoughts.
So it takes a disciplined attitude in undergoing TB treatment, because the treatment of this disease is not short, but can take months, which is the fastest 6-9 months, but some also require more time than that.
That is the importance of routine control to the doctor on a regular basis so that it can be evaluated on the development of the treatment being undertaken, whether the administration of OAT is in accordance with needs, or not. So the doctor can adjust the dosage that can provide optimal results so that the TB germs that are in the patient's body are completely exterminated so that they are declared as complete recovery.
Apart from lifestyle and also discipline in control to the doctor and taking drugs, it is also necessary to ensure that your daily environment is no longer exposed to the germs that cause TB, so it is necessary for people from one house / residence to be advised to consult a doctor especially if there are complaints of long-time coughing, there is lymph node enlargement to ensure that the other person is not affected by TB as well, and if it turns out after being examined by a doctor it turns out to have TB as well, then that person also needs to get treatment, so that people living close to each other does not transmit TB germs alternately.
