TB in Glands
Hi Doc.

I am currently on MDR TB treatement after nearly 7 months on normal TB treatment. I am currently awaiting the results of my third biopsy and after 7 weeks still no bacteria have been found to have grown. Could this be that the TB is gone?

I am concerned that there might be something else wrong with me?

Dear Adie
This sounds like good news to me if there are no growth after 7 weeks! Which symptoms worries you the most at the moment?
