Blood clots / Thrombosis

My best friend (25 yrs old) has recently been diagnosed with 'portal vein and superior mesentric vein thrombosis with chronic thrombosis of the inferior vena cava' she also has 'factor v leiden heterozygous'. she has just been declared disabled and is no longer allowed to work. Im trying to work out what this means for her in the long term, ie mortality and morbidity rate and also the chance of her being able to have children.
I would appreciate any replies, many thanks.
