Our expert says:
Yes, it is probably related to the TB. After TB there can be damage to the airways
called bronchiectasis and from time to time in the future one can get super
added infection in these damaged airways.
It doesn’t necessarily mean you have TB again but if your sputum changes
colour you may need antibiotics. This
condition can also be progressive. It’s
best you see a doctor about this and preferably one experienced in matters of
the chest and TB.
