Tb of the lungs generally affects the top of the lung where it causes damage to the lung parenchyma. With treatment these lesions start healing and a scar tissue is formed. In most case this scar tissue disappears with passage of tIme but in some case the scar tissue may remain through out life even if the disease is completely cured. That is what the case seems to be with you. There is nothing much you can doi about it . I suggest that you do some deep breathing exercises and hope that with time the scar disaPPEARS.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The infection got cured but left the scar behind. It is unlikely to disappear. Nothing could be done to change it.
I have seen several such situations of rejection - in people trying to go the Middle East. It is not easy to convince them.
Be happy, that you are declared cured.
Look for other job opportunities

Take care
God bless
Good luck
