I am a first time poster in this forum, and I have read a lot of knowledgeable posts from many of the members. I am hoping someone could help me with excessive pain that I get after my testosterone shots.
I have been on TRT for about 6 months now, and essentially am loving it. All the effects of therapy have been fantastic, except for the pain after injection:
Test Cypionate, 200mg/10ml. I think it’s standard BA and BB content, and I purchase it through a “lifestyles” doctor that prescribes it to me.
I inject in my upper thigh, either top of thigh or top side of thigh, making a 90% contact with the skin. I also alternate weekly as to which thigh. I press and stretch the skin where I can feel the muscle, and I inject 1ml using a 25g 1" needle. The injection is quick and painless. And generally, for the first 12-16 hours, I get no pain. However, generally the 2nd day, I will get soreness, then turning into intense pain, to the point I cannot stretch, or push off my leg. By end of 2nd day I will get swelling (about 1/2 palm surface area). I have no discoloration, no fever, and no sign of infection.
I told my doctor about it, he had me inject in front of the nurse, and all techniques were considered good. I reduced my dosage to 7ml and it’s a bit better, as 10ml is unbearable.
I weigh 175lb, about 12% body fat.
Has anyone had such an experience? Any advice? I am literally a different person with regards to my mood, energy, libido since I got on TRT, but this is essentially making me an invalid! And I’m an athlete, that’s fractured many bones in the past, so I don’t think it’s a matter of tolerance
Thank you so much in advance
