I was diagnosed with Pulmonary tuberculosis – Lung nodule, please advise?
I was diagnosed with PTB on RUL of my lungs last Feb and took Clarithro 500 7 days + erdosteine. But I didn’t had mucus so I failed to perform sputum testing. Now on my xray it showed a lung nodule. A local pulmo ordered me to get my xray last Feb (which I have it now) and sputum test (BUT STILL I CANT PRODUCE A PHLEGM). What should I do now? Thank you.
