    do you have to take blood thinner for factor v leiden

    I have Factor Five Leiden. They found thid out in 2005. I had a DVT frome the calf of my left leg that extened above my knee. I was on cumadim for a year and lovenox shots for 2months befor they found out what I had. I am now 50 years old and have not had any problem since. I have to grown childen who do not have Factor V. I take 2 baby asprin every day to try and control the thinness of my blood. I still have pain in my left leg and it still swells every day due to the fact that my vein is damaged. But the funny thing is my right foot also swells. I don't know why. Maybe I put more weight on it to compensate for my left leg. Anyone have this problem?

    I also have the blood clotting disorder. I am now 64. when I was 41 I had a DVT in my left leg. I had a couple more and one went to my lung. Both my children and my granddaughter have the factor five. My 38 year old daughter had a blood clot in her upper arm close to her shoulder after she had her tonsils out. I have been taking coumadin for 21 years and have to wear surgical stocking for my legs. What a bummer.

    Your story vey similar to mine. My bro also developed shoulder clot after a fall tho his Calif. drs. said it was just a coincidence; this B4 he was diag. positive for FVL (after my diagnosis). Both my sons have it, tho granddaughter has tested neg., thank God. I don't wear the support stockings yet (age 68) but I did buy some great SAS shoes that really help me (I'm in sales). They're very $, but worth it.
