hello there shygirl! well, in your case i guess you may have contracted a pulmonary tuberculosis based on the findings of your x-rays both pa and apicolordotic view. and the next thing to do? i suggest you undergo a sputum microscopy wherein you will submit your early morning sputum( preferrable with phlegm and should be extracted early in the morning after waking) for examination. After which, should you have PTB bacillus in your sputum you must then undergo a 6-12 month treatment for PTB. but if the result of the sputum microscopy proves otherwise, i suggest you contact your doctor for any other possible disease. and, i would like to advise you to take vitamins regularly with adequate exercise and have an 8-hour sleep or rest daily to boost your immune system. hope this helps! thank you and God bless!!!1!
