Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

You are already taking treatment for Lung Tuberculosis(PTB), it is curable by multidrug therapy in 6 to 8 months provided TB microorganisms are sensitive to drugs and treatment is taken regularly without any default.

How ever in X ray small scar may persist even after successful antitubercular treatment. There are no medicine for such scars.

Please continue your treatment and after completion of treatment repeat an x ray. Your doctor will be able to tell that disease is cured.
Regarding the job abroad it is there view.

We wish good luck and health.
Take care.
