When I was in the hospital, they did a lot of bloodwork on me before the emergency surgery. I finally was able to get my hands on the results (only took 2 weeks!!) and learned that my protime is high and my inr is low. My PCP is very concerned about this and had me get it tested again yesterday. We're still waiting for the results but I'm getting worried. I heard it could be related to connective tissue diseases. One of my greatest fears is that my CTD will progress into lupus.. Anyways, to the point.. I was wondering if there really was a connection between the abnormal PT/INR and lupus? Does anyone else have this problem? Does anybody know what it means?
