Detailed Answer:
Hello

I have read your query,

TB spine will take time to recover

You can do physiotherapy in bed to avoid further complication.
You can do chest physio, range of motion exercises of all joints except spine.
TB spine will heal much better if you take total rest.
You may need to take rest for couple of months,avoid sitting for better end result.

Latest study shows that there is no much use of brace. Yes ASHE BRACE can be used if you are comfortable.

Strictly avoid flexion of spine.

I will advise you to do repeat MRI thoracic spine and blood LIVER test.

I will advise to check your vit B12 and vit D3 level.

ALONG WITH THIS IMPROVE YOUR IMMUNITY BY HIGH PROTEIN DIET, IMMUNITY BOOSTER LIKE TULSI.
