you got tb in feb,when the anti tB drugs were started?you said treatment was started in feb,if it is drug induced hepatitis then why so much delay?in feb YOU were started treatment ,by this time 6 months would have been completed,actually give your correct history?does your Liver function tests were done regularly?how were you confirmed that you have TB?is it TB?sputum test?chestxray?ct chest?bronchoscopy?are the TBdrugs were started empirically?is it TB really? a doctor should have to consider his diagnosis if side effects were present to antiTB drugs generally.have you got any destroyed lung?if you have destroyed lung/bilaterl extensive lesions then i is better not to get married.if your lesions were less then you can get married.there are so mny unanswered questions in your history.need further detailed history.

TB is transmitted through droplets while coughing. This occurs when there is a lung cavity due to TB (open case - sputum positive). Once effective treatment is started sputum becomes negative for TB bacillus within 2 months or so and the patient is no longer infective. You can do a sputum test after 3 months and confirm the status.
