  1. Hi James and thanks again, that's what I meant, looking for alternatives to warfarin treatment that might be friendlier to contact sports, and the active life of a boy in boarding school...that's why I'd like to find second opinions towards the treatment alternatives and prevention
  2. Thank you very much for your reply, I agree that we need to run further tests, I have contacted specialists in Italy and Spain as I discovered that they are very active in those countries regarding PSD. The clot might have taken up to two years to develop, and it was dissolved in a bit over a week, after a month there was no sign of it. We will alter the treatment during summer and will keep you posted. Also read about mutations generated by chicken pox might trigger a drop as in protein s well. Thanks for the help
  3. Hi all, I am new to this forum and trying to get to terms with a newly found protein S deficiency on my 14 year old son due to a mutation, not genetic. He has been put on warfarin and leads a "normal" life. The issue is that he is on a Rugby scholarship in one of the top schools in UK and the sport is an important part of his life. He has been looked after by a top Singaporean doctor and I still fly him to see him sporadically. Unfortunately the doctor as good as he is, is not sympathetic to contact sports. Reason why I look for answers elsewhere to explore the possibility of getting him back to the pitch. His condition was discovered because he developed a clot in the portal vein, but it looks that it took time to grow as the first indications of low haemoglobin showed up 2 years before they discovered the clot. Can anyone point me in the direction of someone that can dose him in such a way that the risks of bleeding are minimised? Anyone with this condition practices contact sports? I don't expect MMF fighters to do this but someone exposed to random injuries due to usual hits in contact sports. Any help greatly appreciated Fernando
