Help! Possibly two mutant clotting genes!

Hi Ladies can anyone help? I already knew that I had Factor 2 prothrombin mutation and have been taking aspirin and injecting Clexane throughout my pregnancy to date (19+2). My Mum (on the back of me finding out I had this) has now got her results. Not only is she heterozygous for Factor 2 but she is also homozygous for MTHFR. She is now flipping out as she has been told that her risk of thrombosis is substantially increased due to the multiple genetic risk factors and thinks she’ll be prescribed warfarin for life.

Do any of you know what this means for me? I will of course speak to my consultant but wondered if anyone had any experience in the meantime – thanks!

think you should tell your consultant
they may re-do your thrombophilia screen and re-evaluate your long-term treatment
