Liver tuberculosis

My mother finished her pulmonary tuberculosis treatment in may after taking medicine for 13 months. Since last 15 days she is having uneasiness in stomach, gas and 3-4 loose motion per day. Despite medicines it's not getting better. Her doctor suggested to take gold TB test as he is suspecting liver TB. Please suggest what needs to be done. She has no other symptoms

Here mentioned symptoms may not be  related liver TB. She need basic tests including endoscopy / colonoscopy and scan abdomen. Gold TB test is nonspecific. Further management depends on the results.
