i'm having fever+bad flu+sore throat+cough wif thick green mucous (sometimes bleeding) for 5days. so, ysterdy i went to campus A clinic ..zu accompanied me.
the doctor diagnosed i was infected by virus/bacteria at lower respiratory tract or TB = tuberculosis.. ohh goshhh.. if itz rite... i'll be isolated from society.. i cant continue my class..frenz must be stay away fr me.. (thatz cross in my mind 1st) .. aimi (hsmate) sure wanna moveout. hahaha.. but deep in my heart, i prayed that i'll be fine. indonesia is d 2nd highest rate of TB in d world. thatz y BCG vaccine is important. suddenly, i almost wanna cry. i didnt tell my frenz.. only certains knw about it at 1st bfr it will be comfirm.
so, doctor asked me to further checkup at lab. photothorax and Zeihl Neilsen staining (to identify the mycobacterium tuberculosa).. thanks God, the result was -ve and photothorax was normal.
den, i called my dad n mom.. :)
TB can occur in lungs n other parts of body wif low immunity..the bacteria can be anywhere esp in crowded people... by inhale-respiration..tx wif 6months of antibiotic..but the bacteria can recurrent attack bcs it has own protection from phagositosis and can hide fr Ab... thatz y vaccine is important for us to prevent it..
in pathology, in microscopic of tuberculosis are soft tubercle-necrotic, Langerhans Darthia cells..
alhamdulilah.. i'm ok ! thanks to my close frenz who really care about me..worried about me meaning that u guys really love me ! muaxxx
