I am still doing pre-requisites for the nursing school. Today I saw my medical examination results and get worried.
Chest X ray shows:
Calcified Granuloma Parahilar Region due to old healed inflammatory process
Radiologically, no evidence of active pulmonary pathology
Both costophrenic sulct appear intact
About 10 years ago, I had two close friends who got TB, I went to visit them often when they were sick. Maybe that was how I got affected.
But I never felt any sympotom. It all cured by myself. Before the medical exam, I did not even know I was affected and my lungs have calcified points.
When apply for the nursing school, and later on to nursing jobs
, will this cause any problem? for example, any limitations on the job I can apply for?
When I am getting older and weaker, will this TB in my lungs come back and becomes active?
Thanks for any advice.
