Enjoy life: Always have a good primary care doctor, and always buy good, non-hmo insurance so that doctors have plenty of time to take care of you. See the doctor for ill symptoms and for regular check-ups. Other than that, one can live life as if there were no TB lung scars, after finishing treatment. That means go out, meet people, get married, have children and grandchildren, and live happily ever after.
