Pulmonary koch's infection

Hi Doc. my past x-ray PA result for the past 3 years (May 2006 ) was " pulmonary koch's infection, right upper lobe" and my doctor gave me anti-tuberculosis medications for 6 months. I finished my therapy for 6 months and starts gaining weight. And now May 2009, my x-ray result was " pulmonary koch's infection resolving, right upper lobe"... Why is it that the result was almost the same? what do  you mean by resolving? I already done my anti-tuberculosis treatment for the past 3 years. Now, i loss weight, i have only back pain,no cough,colds,my CBC is normal ( except Eosinophils value is 1.0), urinalysis normal. I am worried about my x-ray result because I am afraid if i cant go abroad.

Once the lesions heal they get calcified and noninfectious.Resolving means the process is on, despite bacterial negativity.

hello po. meron po kaming kasambahay na meron back pain. pinacheck up po namin and pina x-ray twice, then ang findings sa x-ray ay meron syang posible koch's infection. hindi po inuubo, walang lagnat at sipon na malala yung kasambahay namin since dumation sya. hindi rin po sya makapag produce ng plema para mapa sputum test kase wala po talagang plema. negative din po ang blood test nya para sa TB. ano po kaya magandang gawin or test para ma assure na clear sya. meron po kae syang inaalagaang 2yr old kid e. please advice po sana
