Hello Sir, My elder sister is suffering from gland TB for last 2 months just on the left neck. After 2 months of treatment under Dr. P N Verma dhanbad.He told me that there is less improvement. She should go for sergical treatment. I found on top on web. so please advice me what should I do. I can come over there. I want to talk to you now for clarification. I have all test reports she has gone through. Thank You.
Do not worry, you need to continue with the antitubercular drugs for the full prescribed course. Many of the times the gland melts by itself, if there is no improvement with the node status you can get it removed.
