Hello there...I can understand your concern. If two of your sputum samples have come as after positive, then it indicates you are suffering from tuberculosis. It is a respiratory tract infection. You will need to be further investigated(like chest x ray) before starting treatment. Treatment is about 6 months long if you belong to category a. Also the treatment is available free through rntcp program. Consult your pulmonologist. They will guide you further.
