It would be very uncommon for women with eclampsia to continue to have seizures after pregnancy. Would do not expect preeclampsia ti initiate a seizure disorder. If your friend had a stroke at the the time she had preeclampsia, then she could have an on going seizure disorder. I would expect there to be evidence of the stroke on a CT scan or an MRI.
There is some recent information that suggests that some women who have had severe preeclampsia have functional problems (eg. memory and ability to concentrate) that persists for some time. But,, I know of no information that would suggest that a woman would develop an ongoing seizure disoeder.
