Hello!

You should take anti tubercular drugs for 6 months or maximum 7 months. Should not take single drugs as you may develop resistance.

4 drugs for 2 months and in some resistant cases 1 month extra and 2 drugs (Isoniazid & Rifampicin for 4 months.

Follow up with an orthopedician treating tubercular cases.

Take care!
