Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are sorry for your grandmother's condition. The buildup of fluid in the lungs can mean two things, pulmonary edema or pleural effusion, depending on whether the fluid has accumulated in the lung tissue or in the cavity of the lungs. Neither pulmonary edema nor pleural effusion, does not occur by itself and there must be a previous underlying condition, such as:
Tuberculosis infection Decreased liver function Kidney disease Heart failure Pulmonary embolism Pneumonia Lung injury Viral infection Coronary heart disease Cancer
So that for complaints that your grandmother feels like unbearable pain, swollen feet, the body is getting more and more caring for, this could be because of one of the things above, cancer for example, and not because of the buildup of fluid itself.
Regarding your question, the liquid is black because most likely it is blood, because the blood that has collected and settles like that may have turned dark to black in color, and is no longer fresh red like blood coming out of a wound. It could also be blackened because it was mixed with dead tissue. This fluid does not seem to run out because the body continues to produce the liquid, not the external fluid trapped inside. But whatever it is, the liquid can only be clearly known when the sample has been examined in the laboratory. Because by examining it with various reagents and putting it under a microscope, it can be better known what composition is contained therein.
Then for the treatment, again, of course, it depends on the underlying cause. Cancer treatment is certainly different from impaired liver function, different from tuberculosis, and different from heart problems. Therefore, we suggest that you have a deeper discussion with the doctor who treated your grandmother about the clarity of her illness. And if the doctor who treats him is having difficulties for one reason or another, ask about the possibility of your grandmother being referred to be treated in a more complete health facility, both in terms of availability of equipment and in terms of the completeness of specialist doctors.
Regarding your concerns about general costs, we can only advise you to make health insurance such as BPJS so that your burden can be lighter. So, hopefully it answers your question.
