So, I went to the doctor a week ago and had a complete wellness exam. Well, when I was 16 I developed a Blood Clot (DVT). Ok, so I went through treatment and all that wonderful fun stuff. After getting an ultrasound was told that all I had was "old clot" whatever that means.<br><br>
So, my doctor orders all these blood test a week ago and I was called today and told that I have low Protein S and C as well as Antithrombin III. I don't know what that means entirely, only that it sounds like I need to be on a blood thinner. I hope this doesn't affect my being vegan. I refuse. I am going to go see a Hematologist next Friday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br>
PS- I am 24 years old.

No. I have never been on birth control pills due to a past DVT. The DVT was secondary to being hospitalized for 3 months and temporary paralized.
