Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. May I know your age please?

2. Were you evaluated for this when you had 2 strokes and if so - were the strokes due to bleeding into brain or clot in the brain?

3. May I request you to upload all the pro-coagulopathic work up you have done so far?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Hi...Protein C deficiency is a congenital or acquired condition that leads to increased risk for thrombosis. Congenital protein C deficiency is one of several inherited thrombophilias, which are a heterogeneous group of genetic disorders associated with an elevated risk of venous thromboembolism. A substantial proportion of individuals with protein C deficiency remain asymptomatic throughout life and require no specific therapy. However, thromboprophylaxis may be considered in such individuals, particularly if there is a strong family history of thrombosis, for situations associated with a high thrombotic risk such as pregnancy and the postpartum state, surgery, and trauma. For those patients who do develop clinical manifestations of hereditary protein C deficiency, treatment depends on the particular clinical syndrome. Venous Thrombo Embolism (VTE) in patients with protein C deficiency is managed in much the same way as it is for patients with VTE due to other causes. Because the risk of recurrent VTE in protein C–deficient patients may be as high as 60%, long-term anticoagulation is often recommended, particularly following a spontaneous thromboembolic event. Thromboprophylaxis should be considered for surgery, trauma, and prolonged air travel in individuals with heterozygous protein C deficiency, particularly if there is a strong family history of thrombosis. If you are not maintained on anticoagulation please speak with your physician about thromboprophylaxis during events associated with an elevated risk of thrombosis such as surgery, trauma, immobilization. If you are on warfarin, maintaining a regular diet and notify your physician when changes to your medications are being made.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
