Hi everyone, needed some advice. I have Factor V Leiden disorder which I inherited from my mother (thanks Mom
). I am a heterozygote for this particular disorder. Yesterday, I developed my second clot in a year due to this problem. I don't smoke, take bcps, or have any other risk factors other than the Factor V Leiden disorder. I start nursing school this fall in an ADN program which I am very excited about because I have been planning on this for years ever since I got out of the Navy. My question is.... should I even pursue this with my medical hx? BTW, I developed this second clot on 10mg coumadin QD. I want to work hard as a nurse and really want to work in OB or ER as I have experience in these areas but I want to pull my weight, not just on a part -time basis. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
