Hi, Welcome To HealthcareMagic

The water in your lungs that was removed, is not exactly inside the lung, but in a cavity outside the lung called plural cavity, and the condition is called pleural effusion. You probably were prescribed anti tubercular treatment which is the most common cause of pleural effusion in India. Right now, I presume that you are only anxious. However, do consult a physician if you have breathlessness or prolonged cough.
