I've always had a scar in my upper right lung since November of 2010, My doctor advised a 6months anti TB medication which was not completed. I was only medicated for 3months. March of 2012 i was prescribed to get an xray because of my cough which was medicated with carbocistine mucolytic and antibiotics. My recent xray revealed fibrolinear densities in the right mid lung field.hyperaerated with flattening of both hemidiaphragms and the rest were normal the conclusion was FIBROSIS, RIGHT MID LUNG FIELD HYPERAERATED LUNGS.I have not seen the doctor yet but i want to know how serious this is and the immediate actions i need to take.
I read your question and i understand your concern. You have recurrent tuberculosis and inadequate treatment. You need immediate consult with an infectious disease expert and let them help.
