Hi Sir, My brother is having a major chest infection according to doctors and he is deaf and dumb according to MRI and X-ray it shows that 70% chances of TB. But the TB injection test is negative. There is no mark and swelling anywhere. Still doctor has started the TB treatment just for one month trail. His urine is red in color and having itching on legs. Weight is reducing. Also having mild fever. What best we can do please suggest. Is it right to start TB treatment and how long it will take to cure the infection.

X rays show a typical appearance in TB. So doctors can diagnose fairly accurately based on it. Many times the actual TB bacillus is not found because it is very slow growing organism. Doctors are correct in starting treatment. If it is limited to chest it takes around 6 months. If bone involved then it may take 18 months.

I have had pleural effusion some 10 months back. Around 1500 ml fluid was aspirated and I was on ATT for 8 months. I have been doing breathing exercises and yoga for the same. The pain in the left lung had decreased gradually but there are days when suddenly the pain increases. Is it ok? How much time will it take to completely heal my lungs?

It should by now get healed. The treatment consists of 6-8 months of ATT. I am sure the doctor must have tried to rule out MDRTB. Have you repeated a Xray to check whether the fluid is completely gone
