  • You are obviously very shocked with your diagnoss, but anyone, absolutely anyone, could be responsible for you contracting tuberculosis. If you want to know the name of the doctor who saw you at the walk-in centre, it would be an easy thing to go and ask his/her name. I'm sure it's not classified information. Tuberculois is now relatively easily treatable with antibiotics. Just accept the treatment your doctors offer you, and you will be fine. The days when tuberculosis was a deadly disease are far behind us in countries like the UK which has such good medical care.

  • Tuberculis is not easily treated with antibiotics. There are several types of tuberculosis. Some types are very resistant to antibiotic treatment.

    Any prescribed treatment must be followed to the letter. If you don't follow the treatment the tuberculosis could become drug resistant.

    Not sure that you wanted to hear this.

  • I'm not here to fight but I have to tell you that before the advent of antibiotics tuberculosis was a deadly, almost sure cause of death and later, and within my living memory, in my own lifetime required many months of in-patient care in a sanitarium. And it is in that context and with that knowledge as well as my own later experience of nursing tuberculosis patients, that I formulated my reply to the question. But of course as a mature person I don't object to hearing others' views. Good day and good health to you .

  • Thanks for the reply. Four or five years ago the situation was as you described it. Over the last year there has been increasing concern about some of the strains of tuberculosis that have been appearing. People coming in from other countries across the world have brought their own strains in and this has mixed with the resident strain. The resident strain as I understand it is easily treatable. The newer strains can be very problematic.

  • Tuberculis is not easily detected unless you have reason to look for it. If you have latent TB, you have TB bacteria ‘asleep’ in your body that can ‘wake up’ and make you ill with active TB. This means that you could have had Tuberculis for a long time. It decided to wake up at the time of the chest infection.

  • Sorry You have tuberculosis however you have had this somewhile. You cannot blame the walk in centre for this. Actually YOU are the one who has risked everyone else...
