    What is TB adenitis? Simply means that tuberculosis is found in his lymph nodes (kulani).

    Regardless of location, treatment is still the same - with use of multiple drugs (usually 4) for a long period of time.
    that's right...i thought we need to send him back to the Philippines because the medical exam took us a month before we get a positive result...i don't exactly know what happened but i guess they cleared him since he was now TB free...

    query lang po

    last week my wife vomits with blood. so natakot sya and takbo agad kami sa hospital kahit 9pm na. the doctor immediate asks for a chest xray. ang result: positive TB on the upper left lung.

    i think nakuha nya ito sa ubo nya, kasi mga two months na yung ubo nya, nung first month nagpacheckup kami and solmux lang ang hatol....pero hindi tumigil ang ubo kaya eto nangyari. pwede ba yun? ambilis yata development ng TB?

    anyway, we were referred to a pulmonary doctor, so madaming lab test w/c includes 3 day sputum laboratory. again positive.

    ang gamot na ibinigay is 3 tabs of myrin-P forte before breakfast and isang gamot Avandamett para sa diabetes nya.

    ang side effects is pagsikip ng hiniga, kirot sa lower right stomach, kirot sa both shoulders up to lapay(?), mapulang ihi, continious coughing, panghihina, sinat sa hapon, pagsusuka matapos kumain. regular ba ito na nararamdaman ng TB patient?

    isa pa, hindi na makatulog si misis sa pag-iisip at pag-alala na baka matanggal sya sa trabaho, office work naman sya.

    Kung ako ang iyong tatanungin, dalawang sakit ang dapat gamutin sa asawa mo, TB at Diabetes. Maaring 'overlapping' ang sintomas nya, kaya hindi natin mahihiwalay siguro ang diskusyon nito.

    Ang pag-ubo (matagal na pag-uubo, na mas higit pa sa dalawang linggo) ay maaring senyales ng TB. Maaring nung simula pa lang TB na ang problema nya. Iyong pakatandaan, sya ay may diabetes, ibig sabihin, malamang na mahina ang resistensya lalo na kung hindi kontrolado ang diabetes nya (o mataas ang blood sugar nya sa katawan). Ang iba pang sintomas ng TB ay maaring isa sa sumusunod: walang ganang kumain, pangangayayat, panghihina, madaling mapagod, paglabas ng dugo pag sya ay dumadahak, lagnat lalo na sa dapit-hapon hanggang gabi. May ibang tao na kahit sila ay may TB, wala silang sintomas o senyales na may sakit sila.

    Ayon na rin sayo, nung nagpasuri sya ng kanyang 'sputum', positive ang resulta nito. Ibig sabihin nun, sa plema na nilalabas nya, talagang may TB bacilli na nakikita. Ibig sabihin, maaari syang makahawa ng iba. Hindi ibig sabihin nito na ihihiwalay mo ang kubyertos, plato, at kung ano-ano pang gamit nya. Ang dapat nyang gawin ay mag file ng leave sa opisina, inumin ang gamot nya, kung maari na naka-mask sya kahit na nasa bahay sya, para lang hindi sya makahawa sa iba. Kung namamaos sya, MAARING pati yung tinatawag na larynx ay may TB din.. at kung nagkaganito, talagang nakakahawa sya. Hindi sya dapat dumudura kahit saan, o kaya, umuubo ng ganon-ganon lang. Ang target ninyo ay dapat yung sputum positive maging sputum negative. Hanggat hindi nagiging negatibo iyon, hindi sya dapat pumapasok sa trabaho, dahil makakahawa sya ng iba.

    Ano ang maaring side effects ng pag-inom ng gamot katulad ng Myrin? Ang ihi nya ay magiging parang red-orange, depende sa dami ng iniinom nyang tubig sa araw-araw. Mas mapula pag kakaunti lang ang tubig na iniinom nya. DAPAT ganito talaga ang ihi nya. Ibig sabihin lang nito na talagang iniinom nya ang gamot nya. Yung iba, sumasakit o humahapdi ang sikmura dahil sa gamot. Imo-modify lang ng duktor mo kung papano iinumin ang gamot. Iba pang side effects nyan, panghihina sa mga unang araw ng pag-inom at minsan parang may trangkaso - epekto lang ito ng gamot, lalo na sa unang dalawang linggo. Yung iba, inaantok, yung iba, tumatakaw. Kalaunan, yung iba tumataba. Pag iisipin natin, dahil pa rin sa tamang gamutan ito, habang tumatagal, lumalakas ang resistensya kung iniinom ang gamot ng tama.

    May tatlong side effects na dapat itigil ang gamot kaagad PERO DAPAT bumalik ka sa duktor kagad.
    1 - jaundice o paninilaw ng mata at nang buong katawan - ito ay dahil sa gamot na iniinom, na 3 sa 4 nito ay 'metabolized' sa atay. Dinaragdagan natin ng trabaho ang atay. Hindi masama ito. Pero, kung mayroon syang mga ibang gamot, dapat ipaalam mo sa duktor mo. Liban pa sa, kung umiinom ng alak (siguro naman hindi), dapat hindi na, kasi makikipag kumpetensya pa yun sa mga gamot sa paggamit ng atay.
    2 - pagkakaroon ng rashes o pagpantal. Ang pangangati ay maari pang palampasin, pwedeng uminom ng gamot para mawala ang kati, pero kung namamantal o nagkakaroon ng mga pula-pula sa katawan (rashes), itigil na ang gamot at bumalik sa duktor
    3 - ang hindi pagkita sa kulay berde/green/luntian (pwera na lang kung color blind sya).

    Mas kumplikado ang paggamot siguro dahil sya ay may diabetes. Hanggat hindi naco-control ang blood sugar nya, mas mahirap gamutin ang tb.

    Sa iba pang katanungan mo, mas maiging dun sa tumitingin na sa kanyang pulmo dok itanong. Mas maipapaliwanag nya ito, dahil, mas ma-evaluate nya ang iyong asawa, dahil na-examine nya ang iyong asawa.

    Sana ay makatulong sa iyo ito.

    Hello ogre777, ang mga fixed dose combination tablets tulad ng myrin at triofix, binibigay ayon sa timbang ng pasyente. Tulad ng myrin P, 1tab per 10 kg body weight ang pagbigay dito (maximum ng 5 tabs) so kung 70kg ka, 5 tabs/day ang iinumin mo. Halos ganon din ang price compared sa econopack. Sana nakatulong. PM ka lang kung may iba ka pang katanungan.

  13. #193
    thank you bluemoon5303, tanong lang me ulit bali 54 kg me pwede ba 3tabs inumin ko na myrin p? kasi kung mag shishift me sa myrin p may masasave me kahit papano kasi papatak lang ng P29 at sa triofix P31 ok na yun kahit papano kaysa 44 per day... at ang pag inum ba nuon ay isahan? 3tabs sa single dose? or every 1 hour to 2 hour before a meal? or meron pa bang ibang med na mas mura ko na mabibili pero ganun din ang effect? mahirap buhay ngayon kaya gusto ko makatipid kahit papano... salamat ulit... o nga pala meron ba dito instant message pano kung yung taong tinatanong mo ay online pwede ba mag chat nalang sila or instant message bago kasi me dito sa pinoy exchange... again thank you...

    ^Welcome to what's up doc ogre777. Bawal kasi ang Text lingo dito. Hindi maaring bawasan ng titik ang mga salita. Kailangang tama ang spelling nang sa ganoon ay mas madaling maintindihan ng marami.

    Halimbawa, ang "kasi" ay hindi pwede gawing "kc". Bawal kasi.

    May private messaging dito sa Pex. You can correspond through private messaging with Dr. bluemoon5303 if you'd like.

    Happy pexing.

    Smile TB: gagaling ka talaga sa DOTS Clinic

    Hi! am just new here in pex.

    I want to share my experience. Year 2000, I was diagnosed with tuberculosis. So I start my medication then, after more than 4years of non-stop taking of medicines and 4times of changing my doctor my condition doesn’t change(lumala pa nga yata) but my physical appearance is ok,hindi ako ganon kapayat ( bumabawi ako sa pagkain kahit matagal ako kumain, pinipilit ko sarili ko).

    Year 2004, my last doctor endorsed me in DOTS Clinic. They made examinations on my chest x-ray and sputum, they told me to stop taking any meds. except vitamins habang nag-iintay kami ng result. I’ve waited so long bago ko nakapasok sa kanila.

    Worth waiting naman po.

    The result shows I have a MDRTB, before I got in they said that I have to go to the clinic everyday to take medicines for 18mos.

    Natapos ko na ang 18mos. ko and graduate na ako for almost 2yrs. na .

    Sobrang sarap ng feeling na nakagraduate ka, makikita mo talaga un difference na galing ka na, no need of taking meds (except for vit.) and magiging masarap na kain mo.

    Libre lahat ng gamot (galing sa ibang bansa at wala nabibili sa Philippines) and checkup. X-ray and sputum test lang ang may bayad pero donation lang yun once a month, 3mos., or 6mos. yata un (nakalimutan ko na).

    Kaya sa laht ng organization na bumubuo sa DOTS Clinic, MARAMING SALAMAT po sa inyo.
    Sana nga lang maaga ko nalman un dots clinic para hindi ako naghirap ng ganon katagal pero ok na rin kasi magaling naman na din ako.

    Sana nakatulong ito sa may case ng katulad ko na madali na magamot ang TB *****.

    Hindi naman po lahat ng patients sa dots clinic 18mos ang gamutan, meron din po 6mos. of treatment depende sa case mo, made-determine naman nila un with their tests.

    TRUST DOTS, MAGALING SILA.

    Med Certificate

    Hi!

    I recently had my last check up with my doctor after the 6 months treatment. He asked me to bring my latest x-ray and the my x-ray 6 months ago. The impression in my latest xray is that there are infiltrates in my lungs. When he compared the two, he told me that I'm okay already since the two xrays are almost the same. He said that the infiltrates in my latest xray are merely "scars" already. He already gave me a medical certicate that I'm treated already.

    However, I'm not completely convinced that I'm okay already. Are the xray results enough or are there other ways just to make sure? Recently, i had these tolerable chest pains and sometimes I feel tired and have diffiiculty in breathing.

    Are the scars permanent? Or will it complete heal in the long run? will drinking milk help?

    Last,since I had TB, will these affect my chances in getting hired by other companies? do most companies still hire people who had TB?

    Thanks.

    inquirer, your chances in getting hired by other companies will not be affected since you have already completed the treatment. Just make sure you tell your preemployment physician that you have a history of PTB and finished the 6-month drug regimen.

    I work at HRD-CLINIC at a company. ako yung mga nagaaprove kung fit to work ang isang applicante based sa physical exam ng doctors.

    may chance ka pa din mahire. in fact, nung isang araw lang may inapprove ako na applikante, may post PTB sya.

    kaya wag kang mawalan ng pag asa. magpagaling ka lang.

    and ang TB mahahawa ka lang naman pag kasama mo sa bahay eh may TB den. and it takes years. depends nalang kung immunocompromised sila.

    ^ baket nasinghot ka ng ihi? heheh jokes hindi sya nakukuha dun.

    Mode of transmission: droplet inhalation (can be transferred through coughing, sneezing, talking, singing etc. basta tatalsik laway at plema mo sa hangen )
    kung Mycobacterium tuberculosis ang tumama sayo

    sometimes it can be transferred via skin to skin contact. and extrapulmonary tuberculosis na kalalabasan nun like Pott's disease.

    i think hindi magsusurvive yung bacteria na yan sa ihi. acidic kase yun eh. (tama ba? nakalimutan ko na kase pH ng ihi tagal ko na hindi naghohospital eh waaa... )


    remeber, personal hygiene! para di magkaroon nito. eat right, take time to rest and have a good night sleep.!
