Is it return of tuberculosis?

I was diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis 2 years was initial stage and I have small amount of fluid on right lung and I completed the treatment..took medicines for 8 months and my x rays were good...but from past few days I am having the same stabbing pain in the left side of doctor is saying that I have calcified spots on my lungs which are causing the pain...he is giving me pain killers!! Is it just spots or the pulmonary tuberculosis is back?? Please help...what to do?

Given your history I can see why you are worried. Unfortunately nobody here can diagnose you. I would suggest going back to your doctor or perhaps turning up at A & E for further investigation.


I agree with mrsmummy you do need to go back to your doctor or phone 111 maybe. Hope things improve soon. Xxxxx
