Thanks for writing to us.
Exercise in bone tuberculosis depends on the area of bone which is affected by the infection and the extent of healing that has taken place.. A clinical assessment is needed before allowing you for a weight bearing exercise.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

i hope you had spine disc tuberculosis so site of problem is assumed to be spine . also i hope the major course of chemotherapy is over and you are otherwise symptomatically allright .so before hitting gymm get certain evaluations done
xray of affected area
get your creatine , vit d3 and vit b12 levels checked .
then under giudance of a trained sports physio you can start your gym in a sensible way to avoid getting sports injury .
be cautious and sensible . go slow but be persistant and avoiding sports injuries
