My sis had ptb 6years ago,finished 6mnths treatment.now suffering backache &dry cough & xray result bilateral ptb,do need to take same meds for 6mnths again?
Hi Ellaomang ! If ptb means bilateral pulmonary tuberculosis, then I would suggest you to get your sister reviewed again by the treating physician. This might be a resistant tuberculosis, and might be affecting the spine as well.
