2 blood disorders in 1
I was diagnosed with von WilleBrand disease when I was a child - received many infusions of DDAVP or DDVAP I can't remember which way the initials go.  Anyway in 2007 I had to have my right knee replacement taken out and replaced.  All went well then 2 days later I needed to have an emergency transfusion (not my blood).

4 months later after the surgery and transfusion I was admitted in the hospital with blood clots in my pulmonary artery and lungs.  What a shock - because all my life I was a bleeder now I have Lupus Anticoagulant (clotter) and have to take Warfarin to keep from having more blood clots.

Many tests now show I have both von WilleBrand and Lupus Anticoagulant how is this possible?
