What can cause face swelling in a patient who has undergone triple bypass ?

hi, my 81 yr old mother has had stents put in her heart a couple of months ago and has been feeling increasing weakness ever since... and today has swelling all over her face reaching down her neck area. Since yesterday she has been feeling nauseous and dizzy.. has had triple bypass in the past, and has degenerative disc disease.... has had a couple of strokes in the past... we are concerned about this new condition of swelling.. She also has out-of-control urine incontinence .. could anyone please guide us what could be causing it? and which specialist to consult? thanks
