Yes, you do have a significant risk for developing severe preeclampsia again. Many women have successful pregnancies after one with severe preeclampsia. If you are in a care system that appreciates your risk, (eg. an MFM), the risk to your life and health will be very small. They should be watching you closely. Hospitalization and delivery if necessary will keep you safe. This does not necessarily mean that you will not deliver prematurely again.
From your e-mail address, you are in the UK? The health care system in the UK has a very developed system for triaging women at risk for preeclampsia.
The most important question: Do you want to have a baby? If yes, then arrange to be seen by a specialist in Maternal Fetal Medicine and discuss appropriate care.
