hello prateek mittal
thank you for giving us a chance to help you.
you are suffering from left sided pleural effusion
. the fibrotic lesion on left side could be an old healed one or could be a calcified lymph
you may ask your specialist to drain out the fluid and send it for further biochemical and microbiological examination to determine the cause of effusion. since you have not mentioned the country of your residence, i am assuming that you are from India and in this subcontinent, tuberculosis
is the most common cause of pleural effusion.
you will be required to take antitubercular drugs for a period of six months as per the DOTS programme run by Government of India. if you wish to take it privately, various formulations are available. you have to take a 4drug combination for initial 2months and 3drugs combination for another 4months. i would like to tell you that a complete treatment for 6months will result in a permanent cure of the disease.
wish you a good health and success
any further query is welcome.
Dr. Gurpreet Narula
