Hello
Welcome to the HealthcareMagic.
In factor v mutation(Leiden mutation) thrombosis chances are more Hence you have been prescribed aspirin.
Smoking can affect every organ of body and can lead lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema, bladder cancer , pancreas cancer etc like many ill effects.
So better to stop smoking as you are having thrombosis tendency also.

Take green leafy vegetables and fruits more.
Avoid high fatty diet.
Consult nutrition specialist for weight reduction

Take care
