Finally I was hospitalized for up to 3 weeks in 2 different hospitals, and i moved again to the biggest hospital or class A there I was given a different drug and repeated taking TB medicine from the start ,, and the lung doctor wanted to dissect 2 lumps in the neck and the other one was in the intestine according to CT scan … But the surgeon wants to test it for two months … And today I went back for a check up, the lung doctor wanted to replace my medicine back to the one before the + injection, now this injection is Saturday or Saturday? week can be done because the health center and hospital off? And is there no other way so that my intestine does not enlarge? Is this tuberculosis if left for a while can spread because it was not given medicine? Tx: sorry I said he had a severe illness even to 3 hospitals confused with my illness.
Hello Risyad, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Previously we were concerned about your condition and we understand your curiosity about your current situation. Basically TB is caused by a microbacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which can infect the lungs or other organs such as bones, lymph nodes, intestines, kidneys and brain. Treatment of TB is an antibacterial or antibiotic that is specifically given within a predetermined time in accordance with the category of tuberculosis suffered. The drug given is usually a combination antibiotic drug that is taken by way of drinking, it's just that in certain cases the administration of drugs need to use injections that are usually injected in the right buttocks and change the left buttocks the next day and so on until the therapy schedule is complete.
Regarding how the injection schedule is still being carried out even though the red date or national holiday, you can visit the doctor and explain that you need to get TB injections. Because usually the patient has been given the medicine and just have to inject the medicine by visiting a puskesmas or hospital to inject the drug that has been obtained previously. If not to the doctor, it would be better if you come to the emergency room of a hospital or clinic, because this injection is indeed mandatory to be done so that the effectiveness of the drug can be maintained and hope you can recover from your TB soon. The hospital emergency room is open 24 hours, so it doesn't matter if your holiday goes there to ask for the drug to be injected.
Basically we can not convey far about an enlarged intestine, whether these symptoms lead to intestinal tuberculosis or because of other diseases, so we can not explain how far the possibility of your intestine can be restored as before. It's just that you should handle TB that you live it should still be done regularly, disciplined, according to a predetermined schedule. Because if undisciplined and on schedule, it is very risky that your disease becomes resistant or immune to drugs so that it will cause more severe complications such as kidney damage, brain, heart, liver and other important organs. In addition it will greatly facilitate the bacteria to infect the closest person or family and your loved ones because the growth of bacteria that is not inhibited by TB drugs.
Continue to do the treatment suggested by the doctor because the doctor will definitely understand how your condition is and the best consideration for your disease. And when interacting with other people or traveling out of the house, always use a mask to protect you from infection outside the room which can affect your immune system which also affects your recovery. So that we can convey, hopefully can answer.
