Suggest treatment for TB meningitis in an elderly person
don't think about mortality if he's already improving..
Dear XXXXXXX welcome to HCM..
I've gone through your query and understand your concern..Really appreciate your concern for towards your father..
Now you haven't mentioned his present condition(which is most important right now), as it's having a huge role in his future recovery and well-being..so please let me know how is he overall, is he fully conscious, on any assisted device support, able to walk/talk/eat/passing urine&motion spontaneously ?
Any other significant medical/surgical ailments ?
If there's no other medical/surgical contraindications, then no special diet plan is needed, just make sure to give him high protein diet that's all..
Another very important aspect is to continue all the Anti-Tubercular Therapy exactly as mentioned by the treating hospital/neurologist/neurosurgeon and not to miss it anyway and timely follow-up with the treating Doctor and routine check-up of the shunt by the neurosurgeon..
Let me know all these above information, so that I can guide you more specifically..
