For a serous medical advice you really should seek a good doctor.
Some basic info can be found in your nearest medical library (any 
university has one). Here is the utterly non-medical and non-professional 
info: Protein S helps to inactivate activated coagulation factors (factor 
V, AFAIR?). Given this, I imagine the deficiency in Protein S will lead to 
an increased risk of thrombosis-related heart deseases and strokes. 

HTH,
