Dear Friend

Tuberculoma in brain means tuberculosis of brain. Because of their location, they affect functioning of that particular part of brain. In your case, it has resulted in seizure of left half of body. As you have been cured of it, no further treatment for tuberculosis is needed. In case, you are taking anti-epilepsy medicine, they can be discontinued gradually after seizure free period of 2-3 years.

While you are fit for all executive jobs, you should be careful for jobs like swimming, driving, working with open moving machinery and flying.
