Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your mother's condition. Complaints of coughing and vomiting of blood experienced by your mother can occur related or not related to the history of the operation. Among the possibilities are:
Rupture of blood vessels in the respiratory tract
Immune system disorders
Side effects of blood-thinning drugs
And it could also be for other reasons depending on the results of the examination. Our advice is that you should immediately check the condition of your mother to the doctor, which if constrained by a holiday, check with the emergency room nearest hospital. The emergency room generally does not recognize holidays because it is designed to deal with emergency and sudden problems. With a direct check, it can be seen the tendency of the condition, whether it is interrelated and what is the best treatment for the present condition.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, help your mother by providing warm water that may be mixed with honey or lemon, ask her to put balm on her chest, and may consume over-the-counter cough medicines by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
