How do you say tuberculosis in Japanese?
結核 【けっかく】 kekkaku (n) tuberculosis
At least that’s how I think you say it… not entirely sure to be honest.
But anyway, before I go to Japan I need to get tested for tuberculosis. したくないよ！I don’t want to!
I told them I really really really don’t have TB, but those crazy heads don’t believe me until it’s in writing.
Has anyone gotten a TB test before? What does it entail? I’ve read that it’s a skin test, so I’m assuming there are large pointy needles that must be inserted into my skin… excellent.
I’m also wondering how much it will cost.
It can’t be much worse than when I was getting ready to go to Kenya though.
I had to get Hep A and Hep B, Yellowfever, Rabies, and Typhoid shots all in one day.
Funny that I still ended up getting mono…
