I believe pre-e is a risk factor for peripartum cardiomyopathy - form of congestive heart failure, usually temporary. It seems like pre-e accelerates/unmasks htn. I had an EKG and Echocardigram done and was able to reach almost my baseline exercise capacity by re-joining the gym after my pre-e pregnancy. I see a cardiologist for chronic htn once a year. He did not feel I needed a stress test or anything else.
