Well that’s it. I just finished my first injection of test prop. it’s a few days before the official start of my cycle, I injected to assess pain and soreness. We’ll see what happens in that area til monday.
I’m glad I did an injection now. I did everything wrong :P. I never really thought I’d be nervous, and I didn’t realize how nervous I actually was until it was over and I got lightheaded and had to lay down for a second. Sheesh.
I’m a wuss. I got reaaal sweaty about 5 seconds after I removed the pin. I forgot to aspirate of all things! And I may have drawn too much into the syringe, since the amps say 2.3 mL and I only got 2 syringes filled (one’s being stored for tomorrow, in a closed tupperware container–pin is capped of course).
Should have gotten 3 filled since I’m only doing .75 mL each time.
At least I remembered to swab the injection site before hand :). And I’m still here, so I didn’t hit a vein…in my ass.
So anyway, that’s that. We’ll see how bad the BA is tomorrow–tonight it doesn’t seem too bad, noticeable but not bad, but my glutes are already sore from my good morning/lunge/pull-through combo yesterday. And if the games aren’t rained out, I’ll have 8 hours of umpiring to do tomorrow…
Question–1) something I never really thought of til afterwards–what posture do you guys have when you’re injecting? I stood, and felt awkward. Dumb question, but it just occurred to me now, so I may as well ask it. I know you want the muscles to be relaxed so…
- ways to reduce injection pain due to BA , AND, ways to reduce soreness from the BA? does mobilization of the muscle work for or against reducing soreness?
I guess we’ll find out if I can inject daily–I never really figured it’d be a big problem, but now I’m rethinking. I guess I’ll find out.
Thanks for all you guys’ advice leading up to today. Appreciate it.
