I'm coming in a bit late on this but just wanted to say that NO, not everyone has a clotting disorder - basically, not everyone has everything. However, APS is relatively common among lupus sufferers (around 30%) and is always worth bearing in mind if you are suffering from certain symptoms.

As mentioned above lupus (and any auto-immune diseases) is very individual. Many many people will remain with a very mild level of lupus involvement life-long. There is no reason to believe at this stage that you will not be one of these.

Surgery would, of course, always be discussed with your docs. Pros and cons always have to be weighed up - for anyone.

Your surgery may be very important to you for many reasons. That element has to be considered along with others and discussed with your docs.
