Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,

You are being treated for intestinal Tuberculosis. This comes under extra pulmonary Tuberculosis.

In such cases we need to treat patients between 6 to 9 months depending on site of involvement and any lesion which is present.

You have taken treatment for 8 months and if your treating doctor has stopped antitubercular therapy. Your doctor must have decided that you are cured of Tuberculosis.

usually it is decide clinically and investigations where lesion was like colonoscopy, Ultrasonography, and generalized well being, increase in body weight.

Please follow with your treating physician
Wish you Good Health.
