TB

I have a hiv positive cousin, last year she found she had tb of the stomach. She took treatment for nine months. Symptoms stopped but after four months into the treatment sweating at night restarted and continued unitl treatment was completed. My worry she stills sweats a lot at night. Could it be that tb was never eradicated

Dear Sugarj
Yes it is possible - she can go for a blood test (TB PCR) to see if it is still active
