hello.if you have tuberculosis it is 100% curable with proper and regular treatment for appropriate duration.

and chest pain may be because of pleuritis associted with pneumonitis because of infection.

you need to get proper follow up and investigations done on regular basis once you are on anti-tubercular drugs.

there are other causes of chest pain too but one needs to corelate them clinically.

get yourself examined by your physician.

and your future is secured if you complete your treatment and get cured completely.chances of recurrences are there but rare with correct treatment.

hope i have helped you.
