I think that the hot flashes are normal, and the excessive sweating is just one more way to get rid of the excess fluid. I remember the nurses telling me that would happen, and it did. It wasn't fun, but it is normal. I thought the chills were weird
rgrwife - how are you feeling? I hope you are starting to feel a little better.

I'm feeling a little better each day. I think I'm just a little overwhelmed by the whole experience. I'm still getting the hot flashes and chills, it seems to be worse at night. Between getting up with the baby and waking up covered in sweat, I haven't slept much! Hopefully that will get better soon. Thanks everyone for your responses. :)

make sure you find time for youself too Laura. It is not easy having a toddler and a new baby after all you have been through.

Low plateletes means you will bleed freely and may need a blood transfusion. Elevated liver enzymes can cause your liver to rupture. Hemolysis is the drestruction of red blood cells. I stil have slight liver pains still with no known cause nor before HELLP did I have any trouble with my liver what so ever. As far as the sweating and hot flashes, I never had any of that PP, only when I was pregnant,
