Brief Answer:
It depends upon the type of disease.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
If this is a case of primary tuberculosis then it takes 6-7 month of strict drug treatment for recovery.
If it is a relapse case or due to previous inadequate treatment,or a secondary case then it needs 8-9 month drug treatment.
Hope this will be helpful.
Regards.
