Positive Sputum Culture at St Lukes

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can I ask the members here if any one has undergone the treatment at St Luke's in Manila after having a positive Sputum culture? My fiance just received a call today instructing her to report next week for a Dr appointment. She just gave the samples last month, June 20,21, and 22. I can't imagine its good news.

We would be grateful to anyone who can shine a light on the treatment procedure including how many days per week would she have to report in the clinic for her medication and any expenses not covered in the original medical fees.

Thanks a lot for the information.

So many get that...usually it ends up just fine! Causes a delay and that hurts, but almost every one of these cases I've seen here winds up happy in the end. Just keep hanging in there. Search this forum for 'sputum' if you haven't yet and you'll get the idea.

I wish you are correct, but you're not.

If the 2 month culture test came back positive, St. Luke's typically gives the applicant an early call. Unfortunately, the OP just received one today. The OP also stated that his fiancee had her sputum test not even a month ago.

@ OP- I am sorry you and your fiancee have to go through this obstacle. The treatment will have to be done at the clinic every morning, Monday-Friday and they will give her the meds to take during the weekend. Treatment is (6) six months, if not eight.

Stay strong...

Yes, I was considering those cases where the results were positive (i.e., they test positive for TB)...and even in those cases it's definitely treatable and they go on to get their visa...delayed, but they make it. That was my point.

i had my test 28-29-30.but i believe and pray harder everyday to Jesus of Nazareth ...

i wanna share you the miracle prayer:

Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me.

I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.

Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.

Mary, mother of sorrows, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

To God be thy Glory!!!!!

Thank for the good information and also for the prayers. We are quite devastated as you can imagine. Fortunately she has a brother who lives in Makati so she has a place to stay. She never had any of the classic TB symptoms of weight loss or fever. She had a little cough last month that she thought was just a cold. We are still pretty much in shock at this point.

After our annulment nightmare that lasted 27 months, and now this, I think we are in contention for the longest currently running LDR :wacko:

Thanks again for your replies and concerns. We will make it through this.

Sorry to hear about this, Gregg. Would it be possible to be re-tested? Perhaps a faulty test the first time... hope so!

is it possible to get false positive ? thats sad :huh:
