Avoiding a Med Exam delay

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife contracted TB roughly 8 years ago while working in China. She has fully recovered, but there is scaring on her lungs.

My understanding is that this will most likely trigger a need for a sputum test which will result in a delay of the exam results being provided to the embassy.

My wife has original x-rays from when she received treatment years ago. 

Would it be advisable to bring these x-rays with her to the medical exam to try to preempt any delays?

 

Thanks

I would take them, not sure it will have much impact on your timeline.

I would bring them for sure, as well as evidence of her completing the treatment, as it is a long one, and successful completion of it is key to treating it successfully.  Good luck!

Bring everything she has for the medical. But be warned often times we have seen that the treatment does not meet the CDC's treatment course and it may need to be retreated.

Thank you.

 

She passed the TB exam when she started working on her cruise ship and again when we were pregnant, so I'm confident she will be cleared in the end.
