Unraveling Post Tuberculosis Sequelae

PTBS - When Should I See a Doctor?

If you experience ongoing symptoms such as chest pain, persistent cough, or difficulty breathing after TB treatment, consult your healthcare provider. They can assess your condition and recommend appropriate care.

For localised post TB bronchiectasis surgery should be considered for repeated chest infection, cough in blood, repeated episodes of fever, non homogenous bronchiectasis based on CT findings

For, Aspergilloma surgery should be offered if you have repeated episodes of cough in blood, massive hemoptysis, or ct scan is suggestive of complications in the nearby lung because of the presence of aspergilloma. We must always consult our doctors for this understanding for aspergilloma.

For post tuberculosis destroyed lung surgery should only be done when symptoms persist

Surgery may be considered as an adjunct to medical therapy in certain situations. For example, if there is a localised area of infection that is not responding well to medication, or if there is a risk of spreading the infection to other parts of the body, surgery may be recommended. Additionally, surgery may be considered for the removal of lung cavities or to address complications such as hemoptysis (coughing up blood).

Respiratory Impairment

This can manifest as chronic cough, shortness of breath, and decreased lung function. The damage caused by TB to the lungs can lead to scarring and fibrosis, which can affect the ability to breathe properly.

hemoptysis - Blood in Cough

When TB infection damages the lungs, it can lead to the formation of scar tissue or cavities. These structural changes can weaken blood vessels in the lungs, making them more prone to bleeding. Hemoptysis can occur when these blood vessels rupture, causing blood to be coughed up.

Chest Pain or Pressure or Chest Discomfort

Chest pain can occur as a result of the scarring and fibrosis that develops in the lungs after TB. The pain may be sharp or dull and can be exacerbated by deep breathing or physical activity.
