HELLP Syndrome/Gastric Bypass Surgery

Postby machelle68 » Mon May 03, 2004 07:28 am

I was diagnosed with HELLP at the delivery of my son. I knew something was wrong for the last six weeks of my pregnancy, but actually delivered 4 days after my due date. He is perfect and is now five. I am grateful.

I was obese, and even though everyone told me that it had nothing to do with it....I believe it did. I have since had Gastric Bypass Surgery and am at my ideal weight and have been for a while. I think I am finally ready to try again. We have moved and I will be seeing a new OB for the first time. I do not know what to tell her. This is the truth of it....I deal with the following:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
HELLP Syndrome
Gastric Bypass

Anybody deal with anything like this? And are there experts with any advise that will help me decide if my new OB can deal with this, how I should prepare her etc?
