I am a firm believer that preeclampsia can take a while to "work its way out" of the body. My pre-e also got worse after delivery, and at 11 months postpartum, I am finally starting to feel normal. Does your daughter have a good family physician or internal medicine doctor? Most ob/gyns don't know what to do with us after the first initial 6 weeks postpartum. I found a wonderful family doc that knew a lot about pre-e and said that it can take 5 years to completely recover. Since she is postpartum, docs probably won't worry about her unless her bp is over 140/90... Just depends on the doctor though.
I had the same seeing spots problem. I went to the eye doc and he said that once you see spots, you usually see them off and on forever, especially if you are nearsighted. Any eye doc can take a look and evaluate it.
