Well, this doctor who delivered me and took me off the meds was NOT my regular obgyn. My doctor was unable o be reached that night, as it was the weekend and she was he night before she was going out of town to get her heart checked on. Anyway, it was a doctor I had never met or heard of covering for her. When my bp was 160/110, >1000mg of protein in my urine, and my liver enzymes were very high; this doctor was going to send me home because she didn't want to make a decision without my doctor knowing. Well, my husband and I discussed me staying but in a day I was seeing the perinatalogist anyway so I knew he would just readmit me anyway. So after we make our decision, the nurse came back in and told me they had reached the perinatalogist and to deliver me immediately within the next hour. So baby was out in 20 minutes. My doctor also was able to be reached and she rushed in just to do my tubal and had to leave again. The next morning the same doctor who delivered the baby decided to stop all meds except clonidine.
We have no idea why except that she's an idiot. We've thought that if she had just weaned me off right I wouldnt still have the hpb. They called it rebound hypertension at first but is now being called chronic hypertension.
