I had an emergency c-section at 32 weeks, fullblown preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. My daughter was 2lb, 14 oz and very healthy...only had oxygen for a couple of hours. I took about 48 hours til my liver enzymes began to drop, and my bp returned to "acceptable" levels. I didn't have any seizures, but it was obvious in my nurses eyes, that they feared it... I started a long term regimine of 50mg toprol to control my still elevated bp. My 2nd child was born full term at 39 weeks...my scrip has been increases to 100mg...still waiting to see some improvement in the bp... Anyone else out there with lingering effects from preeclampsia or HELLP syndrome?
