I just got back from my pre-op with my PCP.
This is my latest thing to fret about. The NS ordered PT/PTT (clotting tests) and I fail those because of an autoantibody called Lupus Anticoagulant. My doctor sent him the studies from the hemotologist showing I have normal clotting, I hope that's good enough
Anybody else here have Lupus Anticoagulant? How did your doctors handle it? She also wants DVT prophylaxis, since LA actually means I have hypercoagulative blood and am at risk for clots. So I guess I'll have inflatable socks.
I am also supposed to get a chest x-ray, does anyone know why that is?
