Hello All - I am from the USA and just came upon this forum and am looking for some answers/information.
I am 38 yrs old and had a blood clot in my abdomen (superior mesenteric vein) in October. I have been on Coumadin since then. I have had 2 out of 3 positive blood tests for lupus anticoagulant over the course of the last 7 months. My dr has told me I will need to be on Coumadin for the rest of my life due to that result and the serious of where my clot was.
Is Hughes Syndrome the same thing as Lupus anticoagulant? Has anyone on this site also had a clot in the superior mesenteric vein? There seems to be limited info/forums on either.
