Suggest the risk for pregnancy post tuberculoma surgery

I am 29 years old, weighing 78 kg. It's been 3 years since I had my first born and now wish to plan for a second child. I've suffered from Tuberculoma of the brain in the past and it's been 1 year since I've complete treatment. Is it too early to plan for another child. I fear becuase of 1. My curent weight and how it will affect the foetus 2. The intesnse treatment I was on and if there's any residue in my body that might affect the foetus.Any advice/suggestions/help will be much appreciated.Thanks, Doll

Since its been almost a year since you have been treated ,the past tuberculoma will not affect your pregnancy.
Your weight at 78 kg is more,but I would like to know your height as well.
Excess weight prior to pregnancy can cause problems, such as gestational diabetes, hypertension in pregnancy. There is also increased risk of miscarriage and fetal problems.
The baby may be large which can cause more chances of cesarean ,and also bleeding after birth. So, depending on your BMI calculated with weight/(Height )2 , I would advise weight loss before embarking on the pregnancy.
Hope this helps.
