Tuberculosis

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée has TB. It is dormant and she has old xrays. she will also be going to her doctor in march for her normal physical and get new xrays done. our question is the sputum test. since she has several old xrays, and a doctors note saying there is no issue with the TB. will thats suffice, or will they make us wait while they do a sputum test? Has anyone with old TB scaring gone through this?

Well I know of a doctors office where I used to work that we had a girl that was going over for a college year in the US,she had to have a medical exam done with us.

We did a TB Test on her and it was positive,we sent her to have an xray of the lunge and it turned out to be that she had it as a child before.

It was no problem due to the fact of them being able to prove that it was an old TB.

Hope that might help at least a little bit.

yes thank you. she has several old xrays showing the old scaring. and will get new ones this march at her regular exam, and will even get more just before the SLEC exam. we hope those with the doctors note saying things are all the same the SLEC doctors agree. thanks again

Well the TB test doesn't really mean you have a TB.

The TB test result just tells you that your prone to having TB in the future..

I get that test every time I visit Public Health here in the US and they always give me pills to strengthen my lungs.. (according to the doctor)

Well even if she brings x-rays.. SLEC will still take their own copies.. Their not going to base their decision on the x-ray she submitted.. They will base their findings/result on the X-Ray they will take..

Good Luck!!
