Hi Maulana,

Chronic cough with phlegm (prolonged) accompanied by shortness of breath that does not improve with conventional treatment should be suspected as a tuberculosis infection so the doctor may recommend a tuberculosis treatment regimen that lasts for at least 6 months if it is suspected that your complaint is related to tuberculosis.

During a 6-month treatment regimen the doctor will evaluate any improvements to your complaint, the results of your physical examination and the results of your investigations. Your doctor can decide whether treatment will be continued, changed or stopped based on the results of the examination so you should discuss your complaints during treatment with the doctor who treats you directly so that the doctor can determine the best decision for your condition. In addition to treatment, your doctor can also recommend further examinations such as X-ray examination, sputum examination, spirometry or CT-Scan.

The doctor who treats you certainly understands your overall condition rather than only through online consultation so I strongly recommend that you take regular control and consult with your doctor directly if there are complaints during treatment. If deemed necessary, you can also ask the opinion of other doctors related to your complaint. I suggest that you consult with a pulmonary specialist to get optimal treatment.

May be useful,

dr. Budiono
