Will my wife face problems in the future?
Q: My 25 years old wife is suffering from spinal tuberculosis. She is under treatment for the last 3 months. I would like to know if there would be any changes affecting her for the rest of her life. Will there be any problems in conceiving a baby?
A:Tuberculosis is a treatable condition, provided the treatment is followed as advised by the doctor in nearly all cases. However, the overall function of the body depends on the extent of the disease and the stage at which it is diagnosed, and the results of the investigations, after a clinical evaluation. Conceiving a baby might pose no problems, if there is no uterine involvement.
