My father has been diagnosed with TB advanced stage. Looking at xray, my doctor told that right lung has been completely infected and asked us to admit in GH. Can this be cured?

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
First of all, happy diwali and a happy new year.
TB can be cured with proper treatment and full course. But tge lung fuctions will be compromised. Even after the TB has been completely eradicated, lung damage which has occurred wont reverse to normal.
Get admitted and start the treatment on a urgent basis.
Best regards.
