Made my first TRT injection Monday and, well, didn’t do a great job.
25 gauge 5/8 IM injection of 0.35 ml of cyp into inner part of thigh about 4 inches up from knee.
Slightly painful right after injection but no swelling, next day still slightly sore and tender to the touch but no discoloration and very little to no swelling. Decided to go to the gym and had a good workout, did some cardio and some lifting. Soreness got worse after I cooled down from the workout, and is yet worse today (limping around now). Still no discoloration and still just slightly swollen.
I assume it’s probably a wait it out scenario and it will heal in time, that I may have hit the lymphatic system do to bad injection site and also probably triggered a bigger inflammation response by working out on it. Just wanted to get any advice on symptoms to look out for and ways to help it heal faster (right now planning on advil, icing, sauna, stretching, and holding off on exercise).
Tomorrows injection I will be using my 30 gauge 1/2 insulin needles I have for hCG and doing SQ in the thigh or belly.
