Hello Laurie.
Thanks for sharing your query.
I have gone through your concern and it seems that the tooth which is paining and advised for root canal is carious one and the treatment is started to remove the the pulp so bleeding occured in last appointment. bleeding in exess can be because of underlying infection or the medicine xareltto also causes unusual bleeding from wound.
I would advice you to consult her physician before stopping with the xareltto medicine and taking pain killer. As pain killers like Endone can increase the bleeding.

Take Care.
Thank you.

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your clinical symptoms, i suppose that one of the tooth of your mother has to go for root canal treatment.
She has a appointment for tomorrow till then she can take a painkiller like tab aceclofenac and antibiotics amoxicillin.
Once the treatment is started and the pus is drained she will get relieved with the pain.

Take care!
