Brief Answer:
Please see detailed answer

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Yes, your condition is very much possible complication of spinal tuberculosis.
But at what level of spine (means dorsal or lumbosacreal spine and number of the spine), damage is present would decide the symptoms.
Second you have asked about time required full recovery, again it depends upon level of damage of spine.
Usually vary from 15 days to 6 months.
So more specific answer I would need you MRI spine report, please upload it.
And for how long have you been taking anti tuberculer drugs?

I Hope Your Query is clear now.
Thank You
