Is there are any contraindications taking the HCG drops and being positive for Leiden Factor V ?

I would like to know if there are any contraindications taking the HCG drops and being positive for Leiden Factor V. I am a 56 year old female and have gained so much weight over the last year due to foot surgery - approx. 80 lbs. and I have tried every diet out there. I have had three pregnancies and in general good health except for foot pain.

Let me answer the part of my speciality:
Although i don't know what is the surgery u had in ur foot, but keeping ur weight in the normal range will help generally in reducing the burden on ur foot, so u will have less painful foot.
Also put in mind having 3 pregnancies, may cause over stretching to ur abdominal muscles, so I would like to advice u to go for physiotherapy on ur abdominal muscles, which will help much in ur physical activity.
I find this answer helpful
