Q: Hello sir,
I have been suffering from Tuberculosis for the past 1 year. I have consulted a doctor and gone through a minor operation like taking the sputum from my lungs. It was like liquid. They took 250ml of that liquid out of my lungs. They prescribed me medicines for 6 months and after that extended it to another 3 months. Now i am alright. But my right side ribs are shrinking and it is smaller than left side. It is very major different between two sides of chest. When i consult doctor , he told it is looking like fibroid. It will be cured automatically. But it is not looking like that. Day by day the right side ribs are shrinking more and more. Please help me.
