Hi there

My name is Antjie from South Africa. I used to be a member of the forum 2008 (Annemarie) while on warfarin after DVT and lungembolism which we thought was a complication from a severe liver laceration caused by a horseaccident and bed rest..I was taken off Warfarin in 2009...and then thought I am so lucky - not being sentenced lifelong with Warfarin...

And now....Deciding to start a family but with a history of pre-eclampsia my gynecoligist learning about my history of clots, asked if I was sent for blood screening tests before...they never did when I was in hospital in 2008.

The tests for Protein-C showed abnormal.. and indicated a critically Low. The normal should be 70 - 140% and mine showing 58%.

I was referred to a haematologist that I will see on Monday.

Can anyone give me some information about the causes and treatment normally prescribed? Realy hope I don't have to go back on Warfarin... I have started myself on aspirin as I feel at risk after the blood tests and my appointment only Monday.
