Removed kidney stone. Have diabetes. Swollen face after ESWL. Cause?

My mother just has ESWL for removing the kidney stone in her left kidney. Just to let you know that she has diabetic and has performed conventional surgery and URS two years ago for the same problem. Unlike those previous therapies, after ESWL my mom s face looks little bit swollen. Could you please let me know what is the possible cause of this?

Thanks for the query.
ESWL by itself is unlikely to cause facial swelling.
There are a number of possible reasons to get facial swelling like excess fluid administration, drug allergy or low serum protein levels to name a few.
If the symptoms persist consult a physician who will examine her and suggest further investigations and treatment.
Good luck.
