Why the second sentence use the word FROM ? Can this word be omitted? "Do you mind if I wait here until you finish you medication?" the doctor asked. The patient just said something from under his mask again, but then he shook his head. The sentences are extracted from a essay. Why the second sentence use the word FROM ? Can this word be omitted? Thanks .

The ´´from´´ here indicates the direction from where the words came. And no, it´s not super necessary to be understood.

Yes it can be omitted and it would still make perfect sense.
