Pathologist and Microbiologist 's  Response
You can do a routine Mantoux skin test or a tuberculin skin test where a small amount of a substance called PPD tuberculin is injected just below the skin of your inside forearm and the resulting reaction is observed after a period of 2 to 3 days by a qualified doctor. Blood and sputum tests for detection of TB bacilli can also be done. I would also recommend a endoscopic biopsy of the stomach by your gastroenterologist to rule out presence of granulomas and acid fast TB bacilli on histopathological examination.

Best regards

there is no standard evidence to show that stomach tb is cured. only general symptoms improvement can lead to provisional confirmation.

if you have completed your treatment without missing a single dose than be relaxed
but if you are not sure that you have had all your medication , than you can visit your physician and he can refer you to have mantoux test or igm/igg test
That would make sure
hope that helps
