I have been searching with someone that had the exact same thing CHF after pre-E and I posted two different sites with no reply. I m glad I found your post.
Anyway, I had exact same story with my first preg, diagnosed pre-E @ 35W and 6 days and they decided induction right away. Everything went fine healthy baby went home and after 3 days I had difficulty breathing went to ER and they found that there was fluid in my lungs. I was given lasix as well. Thingd went fine, and I went to cardiologist who told me how serious things were and I had CHF. I was shocked literally devastated oz never had any heart issue nor my family.He put me on lisipnoril though my BP was OK and also heart echo after 3 months. My first echo showed everything went back to normal. I did another echo after 6 months and same result normal. Then he stopped medication.
I was so scared it took me 4 yrs alot of consultation to get preg again. Now I m 24 wks and praying pre-E free pregnancy.
You will probably recover from it very soon.Just when you need to try again consult with your cardiologist and MFM.
Was this your first preg? Hpw are you doing now?
