Diatolic Heart Disfunction

My 78 year old mother had a large kidney stone and while in the hospital experienced IV overload.  This resulted in pulminary edema and she has now been dignosed with Diastolic Heart Disfunction (stiffening of the left ventricle).  Three questions for the cardio specialists of this group, first is this often the result of fluid overload?  Second, there are many beta blockers out there, is there one that is known to help this situation (she is already on diueretics)?  And lastly, is this a permanent situation requiring treatment for the rest of her life?
