Brief Answer:
Treatment is right

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Yes, the drug combination is right for now. In case CBNAAT showed positive with resistance pattern there might a change in the drugs. Since its negative the only combination we can use is as same as advised.

Giving you second course of ATT is mandatory as there is proof for treatment failure.

Brief Answer:
Lymphocyte count

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The best test is on Lymph node only but you can indirectly track the TB by lymphocytes in complete blood count. Higher counts are seen in active TB.
