Hi, I have been diagnosed with PPCM....But now my cardiologist thinks that it may have come from my high blood pressure. I was at an ef of 15% and my pressure was 170/120. Within 10 weeks I went to 50, and doc believes I will recover fully, but they cnat seem to control my pressure, again at 168/128. I was diagnosed as pre-eclamptic. What do you think the chances are that I actually had chronic hypertension? I have nothing to go on becasue I had not seen a doc for 4 years befor the pregnancy. Cant untreated high bloodpressure lead to cardiomyopathy which leads to CHF? I really want to have another baby, so thats why im trying to find out everything that I can.
