It was a big day for numbers yesterday. I had two family members running for reelection in our local primary and I had a doctor's appointment. Both ended pretty well. We won reelection and the doc gave me some promising stats.
I was told yesterday that he (the doc) feels I have a 30-40% chance of the preeclampsia reoccurring, but only about a 10% chance of it happening so early. This of course is in stark contrast to what I was told when I left the hospital. I've decided these doctors really have absolutely no clue as to whether or not it could happen again; only that since I've had it once, then I am at a higher risk than someone who hasn't had it.
Of course, these numbers could be different once I hear from my lab results. Should my homocysteine levels come back high, then that changes those numbers, but he didn't say to what. However, he didn't feel they would come back high. So, we'll see. I go back in three weeks for a BP check. He's weaning me completely off the bp meds. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I won't need them anymore. Hopefully that will be my last appointment for awhile.
