How To Deal With Tuberculosis And Feel Crowded When Going Up The Mountain?
Hello, I am an adventurous person who can’t be kept quiet then I have a disease, I have been treated for about 3 months, how do I deal with tightness when climbing mountains?
Thank you for the question.
KP (Koch Pulmonum) is another term for Tuberculosis (TB, TB). This disease occurs due to a type of bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis which infects the lungs which causes the sufferer to experience prolonged cough, accompanied by mild fever, cold sweat, chest pain, weight gain is difficult to rise, swollen lymph nodes, and in more severe cases can also cause crowded. Shortness in patients with KP, in addition to due to the disease, can also be caused by more severe complications, such as pleural effusion, where the cavity between the lining of the fluid is filled with fluid that compresses the lungs to cause tightness.
Shortness arising purely due to KP is generally not heavy, and does not have to prevent you from traveling up the mountain. But indeed, chronic inflammation due to KP also often causes sufferers to get tired easily so that mountain climbing activities become more difficult to do.
In this condition, it is advisable to undergo TB treatment until completion, at least 6 months while waiting for clinical symptoms to improve. In this way, the risk of TB transmission, from yourself to your colleagues who join in the mountain climbing, can also be minimized. Focus first on your medication, offset by resting, increasing your intake of high-calorie and high-protein foods, drinking more, maintaining cleanliness and air circulation in your home, wearing masks, avoiding smoking, and exercising regularly. Only, after you are declared healed, you can return to continue your adventure hobbies, such as climbing mountains. Your health is certainly far more important than just a hobby, right?
However, if this mountain climbing activity is inevitable, for example due to the necessity of certain institutions, then before climbing the mountain, you should first check yourself with a doctor or pulmonary specialist to be evaluated for your eligibility to undergo the activity. Frequently, if indeed you are declared worthy, your doctor will provide you with several types of treatment to avoid dangerous risks when climbing mountains. In addition to OAT (anti-TB drugs), some other types of drugs can also be given by your doctor according to your health condition (for example, give asthma medication if your tightness arises also because of asthma, stomach medicine if your tightness is associated with increased stomach acid, and so on).
Hope this helps ...
