So here’s the full story. Did 3ccs of test butyrate on fri. Immediately had flu that night, which was helped by excedrin and was all but gone by the next day. Also developed a hard knot at the injection site that was very sore. Soreness did not subside after three days, and swelling got worse on Monday after a back day. Now it is Thursday and I have a patch area the injection site that is rock hard with swelling. Went to doc who was pretty certain it was not an infection, and said the swelling was probably a large hematoma. My glute will be out of commision for at least a couple of weeks, and there may be permanent scar tissue build up. So my questions are as follows:
I’m willing to continue with the gear, this time cut with sterile oil, but I’m gambling that the sterile oil will aleviate this reaction in my other sites. I’d hate to cut 1-to-1 with sterile oil, requiring two sites to inject, and have my left glute and quad have the same reaction. How much of a difference does the sterile oil make?
Doing my back day really seemed to aggravate the existing inflamation. I could feel the sore area of the glute being stressed during deads. Do you guys typically skip workouts that hit injection sites that are sore?
Watch out for that butyrate ester.
