X rays findings could be due to fibrosis, which will persist. It indicates healed lesions. This is correlated with clinical symptoms, like cough, evening rise of temperature, weight loss and blood tests, which will show a raised ESR and increased lymphocyte count, if it is an active infection. The fever is usually an evening rise of temperature, which is low grade fever. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
