Thanks for being with us.We are always happy to help you.
duration and drugs used are variable from patient to patient depending on type of tuberculosis such as pulmonary,extrapulmonary,category 1 or category 2 and Drug sensitivity pattern in individual case.
Here,for you it was extrapulmonary -lymphnode tuberculosis.If you have not been suffered from tuberculosis previously,treatment for you should be for 6 months including 2 months forecox and 4 months Rcinex
.But it may have been extended depending upon symptoms resolution.
Also culture sensitivity pattern of lymph node biopsy
could have helped in deciding the treatment plan more accurately.If you have not done culture sensitivity need not worry now.
From the information given by you,it seems that you have completed the tuberculosis treatment.Your doctor said to stop medicines means you have completed the full course of tuberculosis treatment and declared as treated case or remission.
You need not worry about residual swelling if you do not have other symptoms such as cough
,sweating,tenderness,pus discharge from lymph nodes,weight loss
Swelling may not subside completely in every case.If you are more bothered about swelling for cosmetic reason you may go for excision but i considered it to be unnecessary.
Chances of recurrence are very very less as you have been completely treated.If you get any of the above symptoms in future contact to the physician.
As Rcinex has already been stopped you are not at risk of its effect on liver
Hope you could have understood the things satisfied with the explanation.
More queries most welcome.
Wish you good health.
