How To Deal With Chest Pain After 6 Months Of Pulmonary TB Treatment?
Hello, I want to ask my uncle, I was diagnosed with pulmonary TB. I have been treated for 6 months and have been declared cured. ……. then what’s the solution ??????
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. You need to understand that chest pain is not only caused by TB. There are a number of other diseases whose symptoms are chest pain so regardless of whether you actually have TB or not, if the disease that causes chest pain is not treated, the pain can persist.
Among the possible diseases are:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Tumor or cancer
If the doctor who treats him states there is no problem even though the pain is real, he may have certain diseases that are not detected. And for that we recommend that you try to see a pulmonary doctor at another hospital to seek a second opinion. Thus, there can be new information obtained about your uncle's condition and the best handling.
In addition, also understand that it is your uncle's and your family's right to understand the illness suffered as a whole. If it's stated okay, you can ask in more detail where the pain is coming from and why it can be said to be okay. What is clear for now because the conditions are uncertain, all you can do is to live a healthy lifestyle by eating regularly, maintaining an ideal body weight, avoiding cigarettes, and if something bad happens to your uncle, such as shortness of breath, decreased awareness or pain that is not bearable, do not hesitate to check it to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
