Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that your report is just showing the residual changes in lung , since you give a history of TB it is compatible with that . With pateints these changes are going to stay for years , may be life long but there is nothing to worry about that . It just tell that you had TB earlier it is not going to affect your lung function. Take care. Dr. Shruti
