3 doctors agree

In brief: Possible yes

If the dose is suboptimal or the person is deficient in coagulation factors not affected by Lovenox (enoxaparin) you can still get a blood cloth.

In brief: Certainly

Lovanox is a powerful anticoagulant, but it can be under-dosed, particularly in obese patients, or patients with a predilection to clot.
Your doctor can order a xa level (pronounced "ten-a") to check the effectiveness of lovanox.
