Thyroid level and TB has no correlation.
Anti TB medicines should be taken minimum for 9 months. Please see that you never miss the tablet. Also take some nutricious food.

Since your brother is operated so gland is out ;now for TB the doctor who is treating your brother will give the required medicines .TB medicines are prescribed by any doctor & even the medicines are same it is only that your brother will have to take it for long time properly without any gap.He may be treated upto 9 months to a year depending upon what the doctor feels is good for him.
