Rapid rate: This is a mildly rapid resting heart rate which can be caused by fever,medications,anemia,anxiety,caffeine,alcohol,chocolate,etc. More information is needed. Discuss this with her physician who has more information about her.

This should be ok: If your mother has no complaints of pain, heart racing or shortness of breath don`t worry and follow with your doctor as scheduled. Slight tachycardia after a recent surgery is probably normal.

Fast heart beat: The faster heart beat may be secondary to debility after surgery, but better to have it checked out.
