Edit: sorry for the long post, but please just go through it
It will go away by meds alone, right? Won’t have to have it drained or anything? As I had posted earlier asking if I could get away with sub q injections most said no. So like I had mentioned earlier I am afraid to inject myself . I went to the civil hospital to get the injection done. I was thinking if the nurse does it, then good or I ll come back home and inject myself as I had done so many times in the past. The nurse agreed. She pops the amp and pulls back at the plunger, she immediately takes off the needle and fills the syringe straight up from its mouth ( where the needle sits) in the ampule. Doesn’t matter I said, I give her the 1.5 inch needle to inject. She goes lie down I do. She heads towards the cotton container and I say no no and hand the swab I had to her. They are supposed to be proper trained nurses. And she presses on the lower part of my glute and I turn my head and tell her to inject a bit up. The touch my hip indicating the areas. She still injects in the lowest part of the upper putter glute. More in the middle and outer glute. I felt the oil going in so I relaxed thinking it’s going in the muscle . What shocked me was she used the swab to stop the bleeding and did not wipe before the injection. It has me thinking either I will start injections sub q or glute or anything but will do it myself from now on. As there in imo not a possibility to inject a vein by mistake. Anyway so she didn’t use the swab , will I get an infection? If I do will I have to get it drained and stuff or can it be healed by meds?
Also the main problem I wanted to talk about. When junkies try to inject they struggle getting into a vein even though they are trying to. What are the chances of someone mistakenly injecting in a vein in the upper outer glute? Surely the nurse did not aspirate , nothing.
