Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, for what indications did your mother previously undergo a blood transfusion? Is there a history of certain diseases that he suffered before?
Blood transfusion can be used as one step in the treatment of people who lose blood, for example, post surgery, an accident, bleeding disorders, or other diseases. As with other medical procedures, blood transfusion is not without risk. However, changes in blood pressure are often not a direct risk caused by the process of blood transfusion.
More likely, your mother's blood pressure test results that vary due to differences in examination time, differences in the accuracy of the examination equipment used, different examiner competencies, side effects of drugs, and many other possibilities.
In general, if judging from the results of the blood pressure test you mentioned, chances are your mother's condition is not dangerous. The increased blood pressure at the last examination could be the impact of fatigue, certain mental stresses that are felt, changes in diet and other side effects, side effects of drugs, and so on.
Better, you consult directly the results of your mother's examination with a doctor or specialist in internal medicine who checks to be given the best treatment according to the conditions, yes. For now, you can calm your mother first, avoid him from thinking about something (including conditions health) in excess. Ask him to rest, eat, and also drink more regularly.
