Bloody hellDoes anyone inject into the thigh? Please tell me more.
I'm just back from a toilet trip, during which I lifted my top to find a big bloodied mess at the site of this morning's Heparin injection. The blood appears to have been seeping out slowly for some time. I also have an inch round bruise on the other side of my belly button from yesterday morning, although last night's attempt seems to have left me unscarred.
The nurse did suggest I inject the Puregon into my thigh as I'm quite slim so there's not that much room in my belly for 4 needles a day. I dismissed her suggestion with the air of an old hand, I'm used to it you know. Well, it seems I still have a lot to learn. So, if anyone can enlighten me to the mechanics of injecting into the thigh I would be most grateful. Where exactly do you do it? Any tips for minimising pain and bruising?
As for my belly, ok, ok, I'll wear the loose fitting clothes I was told to wear in the first place. Any other suggestions?
