My father is 64 years of age.
Since 3 years he has been having difficulties in breathing and lung issues with a lot of coughing.
The reports show presence of fibro nodular Koch's lesions in both the lungs. The superior mediastinum is pulled on the right side.

Sincerely awaiting your reply.

3 yrs symptoms.. then TB would have now become resistant to lot drugs.. that is it can be MDRTB.. or maybe the diagnosis is not correct.. you can consult Dr Mehul Thakkar I jupiter hospital in Mumbai or can show me in Nagpur for further management..
Hi there I understand your concern and feeling towards your father health condition.... Since the reports are suggestive of fibronodular Koch its necessary to subject him to confirmatory diagnosis... Treatment is DOTS therapy under RNTCP given free of cost from government of India in government institutions and health facilities... I would suggest you to consult nearest pulmonologist they will do the needful.
