Hi Lina Eliana.. Thank you for the questions given.


Pulmonary TB treatment takes approximately 6 months and after complete treatment, it is necessary to check the sputum to make sure that there are no bacteria that cause pulmonary TB. If from the results of the sputum examination, lung X-ray, and there are no more complaints, it can be said that you have completed TB treatment. However, you still have to be careful because pulmonary TB can reappear if you are re-exposed to the bacteria that cause it.


Symptoms of pulmonary TB are:

Cough more than 2 weeks
Bleeding cough
Night sweats
Weight loss
Fever and chills
Decreased appetite

If you feel any of these symptoms, you should go back to the doctor. The doctor can perform a physical examination and may perform a lung X-ray and sputum examination to confirm the diagnosis. In patients who have had pulmonary TB, fibrosis can occur in the lungs so that patients may still complain of coughing or chest tightness.


In the meantime what you can do:

Eat nutritious food and get enough rest to increase your immune system so you are not easily infected with the bacteria that cause TB
Keep the environment clean
Make sure your home has good air circulation
Regular exercise
Take vitamins

Hope it is useful
