I wrote a month or so back because despite having a stroke which affected my left occipital lobe which left me more or less blind I was turned down for Disability Living Allowance. That agument is still rolling on despite supportive letters from the head of the stroke support team and my specialist. But I had a call last week by consultant's secretary asking if I could go for (yet another) blood test asap and they would send me the form. Being nosey I had a look at it and it states "protein S depletion - repeat to confirm." Anyone know what this is all about? Had a look on the internet and it seems it can be associated with all sorts of nasties. I am also to have a CT of my aortic arch on Friday (my left carotid is completely occluded) although 24 hour ECG and heart ultrasound were clear, apparently. I don't see my consultant for another three weeks and am terribly worried about this Protein S thing so any info would be gratefully received.
