Please call her doctor immediately. She should get medications for the vomiting and she may need to be evaluation for the swelling.

As for her history, they should be aware of it and hopefully that discussion was done before the gamma knife was done.

It may amount to simple cold packs for the swelling - but please let the doctor know.
