TB stands for tuberculosis, which is a disease caused by infection with the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculose which can infect various organs in the body such as the lungs, skin, bones, nerves, and intestines. Tuberculosis bacteria are strong bacteria and therefore require special treatment in the form of treatment for at least 6 months without interruption. If there is a recurrence or suspicion of drug resistance, then treatment can even be done for up to 9 months. In the condition that happened to your grandmother, there is a possibility that drug resistance has occurred, which could be caused perhaps by carelessness in taking medication, or indeed a bad immune system so that the treatment process does not run smoothly. However, it is important for you to make sure that there are other conditions in your grandmother that cause her bloody cough, such as lung cancer, bronchial inflammation, and so on. Do not hesitate to re-check your grandmother to the doctor if indeed the symptoms do not seem to improve. Here we attach an article about tuberculosis. May be useful.
