My twin brother is currently in the hospital with multiple blood clots scattered throughout his lungs. He's doing better now that the pain is under control and the blood thinners are working.
My mom's uncle told me on Facebook that he (the uncle) has a genetic clotting disorder (his dad, my great-grandpa, also had it) called protein C deficiency. I never knew that! They're testing my brother for it now.
I've had 9 pregnancy losses and blood clots (one in my calf and a superficial one in my wrist) but my drs have never tested me for this.
Whether my brother's testing comes back positive or not I'm going to request testing for it.
Does anyone have experience with a protein C deficiency?
