Re : Complications from HELLP

<r>Are you on oral HRT or patch? Patch estrogen does not get metabolized in the liver. When I had my hysterectomy, I went estrogen-free for the first six months, but then went to the patch for my estrogen as I'd had liver failure twice (once with HELLP). Hope you get some answers, but checking your ...

Re : Can you help me with a project?

<t>It's especially important that nurses understand pre-e. So many of the ladies here have been given conflicting or just plain WRONG information by L&D nurses and by the medical assistants in the OB offices (in fact, it's happening to a friend of mine now). Please also make the point that HOW y...

Re : How was Saving Grace?

<t>Yay! for it being in Seattle, I may be able to come!<br/> <br/> Will they post any part of it? I would like Rebecca to hear Christopher's talk. I know she wishes it had never happened, because of how it affected her (and possibly will in the future); it would be nice to hear from another "kid" ab...

Re : Pre-eclampsia and cardiomyopathy

<t>EF could even fluctuate day to day, depending on loading conditions, the sonographer performing the study, the method used to calculate it, and how clear your pictures were. Another point to look at in the report is if it mentions "diastolic dysfunction," or "inverse E-A ratio." The heart's abili...

Re : Pre-eclampsia and cardiomyopathy

<t>If your ejection fraction is now normal, it's probable that the cardiomyopathy was transient. I have seen women with immediate post-partum cardiomyopathy (me included) which resolved within weeks after delivery, with normal function ever since. In all the echocardiograms I've done, I don't rememb...

Re : Any update on Suzanne & Brandon?

<t>Suzanne, when Randall is here, you really need to report this OB's behavior to someone, whether it be your insurer, the state board, whatever. No one should have to go through what you just did at her hands. I am SOOO sorry that you had to go through all that at such a stressful time, but also so...

Re : New, 23 wks, suspected pre-e

I am so sorry to hear this news. How very frightening for you all, and how very, very sad. :( Please take good care of yourself in this time of healing, and I hope the board can continue to be a resource in the sad, difficult times ahead.
