Since you had completed a full course of anti tubercular .
If you will take unnecessary treatment m there develop resistant , that is most dangerous in case of a tubercular patient .
As you mentioned that you took almost 33 months ( enough ).
Now I don't know the position of enlarged lymph nodes , so either upload picture of lymph nodes . If multiple lymph nodes ( enlarged ) or localized only one.
So, get in excision biopsy of enlarged lymph nodes and get in culture and drug sensitivity test for further management .
In my opinion consult a surgeon and get his opinion.
