Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Munish Sood's  Response
1. going by your history, it is obvious that scarring has already replaced the lung tissue, now if the scar are small they won't cause any problem, but if they are extensive and wide spread,it may result in thickening and stiffening of the lung tissue resulting in breathing problems, so any features of cough,fever,weight loss,shortness of breath in your daughter?
2. because SCARS are permanent they are difficult to cure, thus treatment is aimed to slow tissue damage and improve lung function, and for this cortico steroids are better alternatives to slow scarring in the tissues.
3. In order to slow scarring, Immunomodulators (Rasayan Chikitsa) which increases immunity of the body like Albizia lebbeck (Shirish), chyawanprash, Ashwagandha are routinely given by Ayurveda Physician to persons who are taking ATT for PTB.
