The treatment of PTB is a full course of Anti tubercular treatment taken regularly with out default in proper dosage and full duration which is generally six months. Some times with proper medication, though the disease is cured but scar remains. If you have no symptoms of low grade fever, cough, weight loss and generalized malaise, i feel it must be the scar tissue which may or may not go away with time.
