As post diagnosis of the TB of bone one needs to undergo the medicine for the TB to control the progression of the condition. Which will be taken care of by the orthopedist for sure. There is a principle of management to work behind TB bone and most of the doctors will work the same pattern without any modifications.

Also, she needs to be treated for her high blood pressure, thyroid and swelling as well. Because these systems may lead to additional symptoms apart from the TB bone. So having medicine to correct those symptoms is also advised. Use stocking to correct the swelling and diuretic to control the high blood pressure and swelling.

Due to TB bone and other added pathologies, there will be a weakness of the body and its muscles. Doing simple passive or active exercise will help improve the circulation and also the metabolism which will help the absorption of the medicine to be better to have it's effects to be optimum. Be optimised and work on a multidirectional way to help your mother.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My wife , 61 years old, is being treated for TB . She had lung TB at the age of 15 which was treated then. Now it is supspected that Tb has come in the bone joints of both feet. This causes pain, inflammation and pigmentation. After two months of AKT 4 and 2months of AKT 3, doctor asked her to take AKT 2 for two more months alongwith vitamins. My query -- AKT 4 is to be taken on empty stomach or after food.? Second doctor suggests a combination drug Worex 2 or Cx-3 in place of AKT 2 . Chemists dont seem to know these drugs. please advise.
