my aunt waited 60 days then pinayagan din siya umalis, she was positive of something na hindi serious. When she arrived here she got a letter telling her to have a check-up in a county hospital, doctor said its an "sleeping infection" which is not serious.

Totoo yan. Once you have the TB bacteria in your body, you will always have it. Ang question lang naman diyan is - if nakakahawa yun TB o hindi. Kumbaga latent or active. Kung active talagang di ka papayagan makaalis, kasi communicable siya. Pero kung latent naman, they will let you pass. Tapos kung nag-undergo ka na ng 6 months na treatment sa Pinas, okay na yun. Most likely, they will issue the visa.

That 6 month treatment is torture, just imagine that you have to go to St. Lukes everyday, that would totally suck.

I know I bore everyone with this but no question is a dumb question does anyone here or know after waiting 60 days anyone being positive???????

Dale, I think this was answered on your first post of this nature.

Sorry guys I do not read Tagalog yet (maybe you've answered already)! Am learning! :D

If you have not heard from them within 60 days (more likely within 30-45 days) the results will be negative.

It is SLMC practice to notify patients immediately upon finding POSITIVE result for the TB culture test so that patient can begin taking medication.

If you have not received call from SLMC within the 60 day timeframe...the result will be negative.

As said....if she has ever had TB or even medication for TB...she will always have residual effects leading to false positives in skin test.

If there is anything that may indicate an abnormality in the xray...SLMC will require the sputum/culture testing to be completed (60 days for results).

If it has been more than 60 days....call or go to SLMC and ask!
