As per information provided by you, your mother 89 years of age is having nausea and vomiting after more than 10 hours following PET scan.
I do not think this is due to any adverse reaction to the PET scan as such.
Still going by her age and that she has vomited 3-4 times, I suggest you take her to your hospital and get her examined by doctors.
We dont know but she may be going in for dehydration, which at this age may lead to serious complications.
Take care
