I was diagnost with q fever,im on meds,seeing dr. The shock is to great,im scared. Im also told by the dr. that ive been expose to Tuberculosis. Here soon im suppose to go see a Cardio dr.
My question is: do i pose a threat to my only one kid i got?
My family? I have asked these question to the treating dr.,but he keeps telling me he will kill the bug as long as i take the meds...that dont answer my question. I told him that work at a this place as a diesel tech. where these pump trucks service porta pottys. The company dont take good care of the spills on the yard of waste that these trucks leak. I told him I constantly walk on this spills,if that could be a possible way of me getting tthis q fever. Also mention that i have had feces or fecal matter in my mouth while working on these trucks.
Still dr. dont tell me if this can come from there. That its rare and he will kill bug.

Please help me
