Pulmonary Hypertension Expert Forum
I had a TB. Please clarify my doubt.
About This Forum:

Pulmonary hypertension is a condition associated with high blood pressure in the arteries that connect your heart with your lungs. It is a serious condition for which there are many emerging treatments but no definite cure. In this disease, the blood vessels that carry oxygen-poor blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow, which causes your heart to work harder to pump the blood. This forum is a place to ask questions about Pulmonary Hypertension. Some examples are: What caused me to get pulmonary hypertension? How is pulmonary hypertension diagnosed? What treatment options are available?

IMPORTANT!! If you have a question that requires immediate medical attention, or if you think you may have an emergency situation, please call your doctor or 911 IMMEDIATELY!

I had a TB. Please clarify my doubt.

I was infected by TB in lungs in the beginning of jan'2012.  The treatment has gone well for 7 months.  I showed the X-ray some 20 days back at SRM General Hospital in Potheri, Chennai.  Looking at the X-ray they said that TB has been cleared, so i can stop the medicine.  A doubt has arisen in my mind.  I have heard, generally speaking, that TB Medicines have to be continued for atleast a period of 9 months.  I have been taking RCinex and Benedon.  Just today i was not feeling well, so the doubt has arisen.  Please clarify if TB can be cured in 7 months.
