pro thrombotic stage

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir

Factor VIII (FVIII) is an essential blood-clotting protein , also known as anti-hemophilic factor (AHF). In humans, factor VIII is encoded by the F8 gene.

Increase in the factor increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, which are really XXXXXXX condition which needs immediate attention and treatment. You might need further investigation and consultation with specialist. I would refer you to a hematologist for further evaluation. You might need oral anticoagulant drugs with anti platelet drugs to avoid present risk.

So consult a hematologist at the earliest.

Brief Answer:
Don't be concerned if you are asymptomatic...

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir

Do not be worried. You need to visit the ER and get further tests if you are symptomatic. However it is better to visit a hematologist and discuss about further tests at the earliest.

The numbers might not go back to normal and it's difficult to predict how long you been with it.
