i’m pinning 500mg (2ml) of test-e once a week. i’m about to start my third week, and my post injection pain was almost unbearable. first and second injections went into my right and left anterior quad. the first injection came with some PIP, which i was not expecting to be so intense. i had to limp for about 3 days. eventually it got better. the second injection, i’m pretty sure i didn’t go deep enough and the gear spread to my subdermal level because my entire quad is swollen and MUCH more painful. ROM went totally out the window and I had a serious limp from monday (day of pin) to this (friday) morning. there is still a hard lump and some edema, but no fever or increasing pain, pitting, or redness. anyway, to avoid this happening in the future, i was wondering if the z-track method would be best, or if any of the vets use it. i also heard that noob muscles (i had never pinned anything before) have it the hardest the first time. i’m kind of dreading this monday because i’ll be pinning my right quad again. hopefully the pain isn’t as intense.
i read the sticky. inb4 “you didn’t read the sticky” the sticky doesn’t cover shallow injections that spread dermally.
