About tb fact

I get cured from tb and stopped my drug in last 2 month. i have a question that m i at highest risk to get tb disease again as i read on the internet that people who are recently infected in last two year are highest risk to get it again if reinfection happens? and another question, if i inhaled new normal bacteria again(not mdr bacteria) then would i develop mdr tb or it would be normal? and if i would perform skin test, will it show false positive result because i have recently cured from it. and if yes i can perform it then when should i?
