Am I sick?

I had a history of pulmonary complex when I was a child and had undergone a 6 months treatment for PTB. I had a sputum test recently and with the following results: Acid fast bacilli stain - Negative; Pus cells - rare; Epithelial cells - Few

Is this normal? Or am I sick again?

Hi,
How are you? What symptoms are present? Sputum test showed negative acid fast bacilli and may suggest no recurrence. However, for proper evaluation, it is best that you discuss the results with your doctor. Factors such as the symptoms present and your medical history are important considerations also. Take care and do keep us posted.
