3 years ago I had DVT following a knee operation. I was treated and discharged by my local hospital after 6 months and advised to take aspirin as a precautionary measure. I was tested and was positive for anti-cardiolipin and lupus anticoagulant antibodies on two occasions but I was not told that I had APS. I have been in Cyprus on holiday where I was hospitalised with DVT in the other leg. AXA Insurance company are now refusing to pay my medical bills as I had a 'condition' which I didn't disclose and was taking 'prescribed' medication (aspirin!). I was never told I had APS until I saw the specialist in Cyprus. Has anyone else had a similar problem with insurance who could offer advice? I'm facing a hefty bill as I was hospitalised for 4 days and then treated as an out-patient.
