Hello, With adequate treatment, clinical remission is practically 100%. In NTM infections, with adequate surgical treatment, clinical remission is greater than 95%. Doctor said lymp node will regress ,if it doesn't regress it can be aspirated or removed , You might have lost some weight , have nutritious food , recurrence occurs when persons immunity becomes weak .
