Asking this question for somebody else here!
Some parents that I know are very concerned, as their 16 year old's friend, has extrapulmonary TB.
- They have been rather ill for several months.
- They have had a constant cough for several months.
They had their lymph nodes removed from their neck to try and cure this, as they were very swollen (you could see them bulging out of the neck)
She says she has to have several antibiotics, with several side effects for six months. She also has check ups every fortnight at the hospital. She also says she has dizziness and numbness which is a side effect.
- Are there any long term complications of extrapulmonary TB? He is naturally concerned for his best friend's health.
Edit: She has had it for almost a year before treatment started, as she was misdiagnosed.
