TB Gland Surgery Scar Treatment?
Good night, r n r nI had undergone surgical removal of glandular TB about 7 months ago. After that I went for treatment for tuberculosis. Initially the doctor suggested treatment for 6 months. But after the doctor saw my surgical wound that was still red, treatment was recommended to be 9 months. From what I experienced, I want to ask whether the color of the surgical wound becomes a healing parameter of TB gland? I have asked the doctor who treated me, the doctor’s answer was correct. The red color on the surgical wound, means that there is still a lot of fragile skin tissue and it is caused by the TB bacteria that attacks me. Because it takes longer treatment. R n r nI’m asking for an explanation, because honestly I’m not satisfied with the explanation of the doctor who treats me. R n r nThank you doctor.
