Factor V Leiden and Sadie

Oh yeah - the doctor asked if we've had her tested for FVL. It's not a bad idea seeing as she is having surgery coming up.

She said waiting till she was in her teens was okay - but probably best to find out now. So, I think we'll get it done at the next appt. I don't think it's covered by insurance, but I don't care. It's important to know if your child has it. And since there is a 50/50 chance of just ONE positive FVL parent to pass it on - I think it's a smart idea.

Hi there! I found out a few months ago that I have FVL and MTHFR...I am just trying to find others with similar experience...
Good luck!
