I’ve been injecting 2cc’s into my glutes each week for the past 8 weeks (1.5" 23g pin). Most weeks I’ll split it up into 2 1cc pins on both sides, but a couple times I’ve gone with 2cc’s in one side.
On the last two injections on my right side, it gets tough to slide the pin in at about halfway in. It doesn’t really hurt, just becomes difficult to push in… so I’ve pushed through the rest of the way and completed my injection.
Other than bleeding when I’m done, I haven’t noticed any problems with the injections. I’m assuming that I’m getting some scar tissue, but I’m only pinning once a week. Any worries here? I’m not a huge fan of injecting myself. Glutes were pretty easy, but I’m probably going to try my quads next time.
If it is scar tissue, can I do anything to make it go away or am I stuck with it?
