Hi, i'm an old mdr-tb patient. Its been 4 years now that i'M done taking meds. I already had my xray exam last march and seen unokay that i am still positive knochs bacteria etc. Then i had my sputum after, for assurance, and it says negative. I also had my lung ultrasound exam then its negative also. But after my mdr medication i still have this brownish phlegm everymorning and before goibg to bed at night but during the whole day only clear and sometimes no cough exist. What does that mean?
I suspect that the brownish phlegm is a reflection of some degree of chronic bronchitis and, in the presence of a negative X-ray and a negative sputum culture, of little or no significance. I suggest that you discuss this with your doctor, if you have not already done so.
