Re: MDR TB ? TB Treatment
Hi AndyiSandy, I'm sorry no one replied to your post. I only saw it because I have begun to suspect that I might have non-pumonary TB....just a hunch. (Being treated for lyme and not recovering yet.) I lived in Rio de Janeiro for two years and TB can have a long latency period. I am only educating myself now so can't offer info...but I hope that back in Sept. you were able to see the doc sooner than six weeks and get things figured out. There's lots of MDR TB out there. But with compliance, still a great chance, as I understand it, of getting better. Docs in India are really great with TB--so much of the scientific literature published in English is written by docs in India, bless their hearts. I hope you are feeling much better now and that you are happy with your UK doc. There must be good docs trained in India, who know TB well, working in the UK. Here in the US, there is a specialty called "travel medicine"--they have more of a global picture when it comes to tropical IDs..Be well!
