Re: Long-term impacts from Pre-e/HELLP?

I just want to let you know that I feel the same way. I don't have any *real* answers for you, but my son is 16 months old and I do not feel like the same person I was before my PP PE experience. With my recent bloodwork results, my kidneys are still not where they should be. And I know they were fi...

Re: Creatine question

Laura, my blood creatinine level was .53 about two weeks before I delivered my last son and the crap hit the fan. After delivery my level went to 1.4. Normal range for a woman is up to 1.0 and a for men I think it is 1.4. My internist and I have watched and continue to watch my creatinine level sinc...

Re: High bp after delivery???

I also had post partum PE and it can be just as dangerous. I was admitted back into ICU for 4 more days. It is quite common on this forum to see women whose pressures are higher post partum. For some women it just takes a while for your body to normalize. I would be on the lookout for any other symp...

Re: anxiety at the doctors office

I think we have ALL had this issue with the anxiety. Mine still comes and goes but has gotten much better. I too got on Zoloft for about a year after my last delivery and just recently weaned off of it. It helped me tremendously. I also try to picture in my mind before when I would go to the doc or ...

Re : Baby Aidyn Back in hospital - Growing to hate PE

<t>I am glad to see your update. I am sooooooo sorry you had to be readmitted, but happy you and your docs are on top of it!!! PE is so tricky and especially the post partum period. It WILL get better I promise. It just takes awhile for some of us. I was twitching like a mad woman too when I was rel...

Re : Baby Aidyn Back in hospital - Growing to hate PE

<t>Just reading this post and hoping for an update. I hope you called your doctor and let them know your bp is still so high. It sounds so similiar to my story and I was readmitted with severe PPPE. Your Labetalol may not be enough and perhaps they can add Norvasc and/or HCTZ (diuretic) to help with...

Re : Forgot to take medecine-BP question

<t>Brandi, sounds like you already know this, but just want to chime in that in the early weeks post partum, my Reli-on machine would only ERROR out when my bp was crazy high. So high the machine could not register it. In fact, on one of those times I did do to the ER with pp PE. <br/> <br/> You def...

Re : Panic Attacks 1 yr pp

<t>Thank you Beth. I have thought of talking with someone and I definitely will if I don't get some relief. And I will not hesitate to get back on Zoloft if this continues. I will def look into the EMDR as well. <br/> <br/> The frustration comes in feeling like I was doing so well and then BAM, mayb...
