My mom had a node on her neck, after biopsy TB was detected. While taking medicines for TB, her liver got effected as a result she had liver cirosis ( docs stoped TB medicines). After proper treatment in a liver hospital n medication her condition is improving and she is back home.
Now every three months we have to visit the doc along with ultrasound and other LFT KFT test mentioned by doctor.
In a latest ultrasound report "periportal lymph nodes" were found size 1.8 * 0.88 and 1.6* 0.78.
Is it TB again? Doc has asked for biopsy.
Please suggest. if its TB , can we start her treatment? As she has cirosis now n if we see last time when her treatment were going on for TB her liver was damaged resulting in cirosis.
How is your mom? I understand your concern about your mother's condition. TB can not be ruled out especially if the treatment was not finished. To determine the definite diagnosis, biopsy may need to be done. It is highly recommended that you discuss the results of her diagnostic tests with her attending physicians for proper evaluation. Risks and benefits are likewise considered in determining the management plan. Take care do keep us posted.
