Thanks for visiting HCM.
Tubercular lymphadenitis is a paucibacillary disease and relatively less contagious than lung tuberculosis. The disease is fully curable by a treatment course of six months.
To start a family can be attempted but will be better if it is done after first two months of the treatment.
Weight training supplements can be undertaken and Tuberculosis is not a contra-indication but heavy exercise should be avoided..
The only request to you will be ....please continue the anti-tubercular treatment in prescribed doses for prescibed duration i.e at least for six months...

Best wishes
