Thereof, she decided to consult a doctor for her sudden deteriorating health. Megha's father recommended her to see Dr. Shailendra Nath Gaur, HOD, Respiratory Medicine and Tuberculosis at Sharda Hospital.

While understanding her symptoms the doctor and examining her, the doctor ordered blood tests and imaging tests to confirm the condition. Megha was diagnosed with Tuberculosis.

During the course of time, Megha's weight reduced from 61 kgs to 56 kgs leaving her weak and emaciated. While Megha was undergoing treatment, she also continued working and carrying out her normal duties.

The combinations drugs and medications prescribed by Dr. Gaur helped in improving Megha's condition. However, the medications stopped working after 2 months. Observing her condition taking a relapse, the doctor added another TB injection (daily) for the entire two months.
