u are well worried PTB reactivates if u are not taking proper diet or have not finished ur course ...moreover it also bcomes a work hazard esp if u r working in a congested place with many people in aroom with poor ventilation ..such a place is best for PTB BACTERIA TO ATTACK

Hi,Che,
Thanks for query,
if pulmonary TB is cured completely there is nothing wrong for night shift.
Activity does not make a man weak,only thing is to keep general health good,
if you have proper diet and resistance power is good you can do hard work,
your health is down due to weak food,lack of nourishment may cause trouble.
but having complete cure you do not worry.
ok and bye.
