Brief Answer:
Sputum examination needed

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Yes, left lung appears damaged due to probable TB in past. The damage shown in the CT scan is most of times irreversible. There is compensatory increased size of the right lung hence, you may not have severe oxygenation problem.

Present symptoms you have could be possible recurrence of TB. You may have to get sputum tested for TB.

Pain in the right lung is not pathological. Right lung is normal, since there is increase in size there could be mild discomfort which may not last long.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please do ask if you have any doubts.
