OMG what a breath of fresh air this forum is.... I live in the UK and had never heard of HELLP working as an ED nurse:
I presented at 32 weeks with borderline high BP, was monitored in a day unit and came in at 33 weeks with epigastric pain was sent home as a bilary infection, developed Class 1 HELLP at 34 weeks had a emergency C section with platelets of 30 and deranged LFTs. Its now nearly 7 weeks since baby Arran is home from NICU and doing great however no one seems to know why I still have ankle/finger swelling and also why my abdomen is swelling I have put on 4 lb of weight in the last 3 weeks even though I follow a healthy diet and am walking for hours each week and now cycling,my abdomen is also tender when prodded. Am waiting to see a liver doc as my liver bloods are still not quite normal, I am concerned about the swelling but no one seems to have answers or investigations so far, does anyone have any advice??
