Hi Pankaj

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Get sputum AFB also done and consult your physician to rule out TB. No need to worry even if TB is positive, if you take medicines for 6 months all your problems will be solved. You can get married no harm in that, no need to change your lifestyle. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any.

Regards
