    Girls, I'm just gonna give you fair warning I'm about to post up a GRAPHIC PICTURE.

    Just for curiosity's sake, I'm wondering if the bruising I get from my Clexane is the same as what everyone else gets. I mean, it's pretty bad bruising but I thought it must be normal. How would I know any different right? But DH thinks it's pretty bad and I think he's worried. So give me a few minutes to upload and let me know what you think. Apologies for the flabby belly - I'm a big girl and I can't hide it!

    GRAPHIC PICTURE WARNING!

    OK, here it is girls. The big question - Is this normal bruising for Clexane shots?


    (And I'll thank everyone for refraining from pointing out the flab, lol.)

    OUCH! that looks sore, I did have one patch that looked probably as bad, maybe not quite as bad but it wasn't minor either and took ages to go away completely. Ive only done clex a little bit tho. what flab

    its good news about your DH @Blossom74. coming to the decision lifted both of us and DH is more optimistic definitely. So I do think they bottle stuff up

    @Blossom74 I have had bruising like that, and I've seen some in my support group that was worse!

    It's really important to do the following to try and limit bruising:
    - put the tip of the needle on your belly, if it stings, move to another area
    -have the bevel bit of the needle down, ie you can see the angle and the hole where the liquid comes out, have that facing the floor
    - make sure the needle is straight, don't go in on an angle
    - flick/shake the needle so the air bubble is at the top and near the plastic part of the plunger
    - inject slowly
    - apply a little pressure afterwards
    - I sometimes ice before and after, especially if I can't find an area to inject where it doesn't sting

    Exactly. What flab At bl00dy 90 kilos TRUST ME there is plenty of it. I certainly don't need other people pointing it out though

    That's the same bruising I get every time unfortunately. I am gradually jabbing up higher and higher but the darker patches haven't been jabbed for 2 weeks!

    It's not too painful unless I lean onto it. But there is a hard marble-like lump on the darkest part, and that hurts if I push on it. So obviously I try not to do that. I was just wondering if it was 'normal.'

    Hmmm, well I do most of that I don't normally ice because who has the time, right?! Actually, I don't flick the syringe either. I thought the bubble was meant to be at the bottom of the syringe. Hmmm, better check that next time. I guess the 'good news' is that I only have 2 more to go and I can stop it anyway.....I'll keep going until BT results, obviously.
