'No One Will Marry You': TB Survivors Open Up About Stigmas They Face
Rhea Lobo was only 19 years old when she complained of excruciating pain in her left leg. She rushed to the doctor who told her it can either be cancer, TB or a bacterial infection. "A biopsy report from a private clinic came negative and I was given regular antibiotics," said Ms Lobo, who is now 28. After a month and a half, she was correctly diagnosed with TB and it took another six months and three surgeries until she was given the right dosage.
