Infection / Anti-biotics & injection point w/ Pic

Hi Gents,
 
Ok so my first two injections went fine without a hitch alternating glutes. I'm injecting 1ml Lixus Test E @ 300mg/ml Mondays & Thursdays.
 
My last injection was Monday 4th July. Since then i've had severe PIP and its gotten to the point i cant sit down on my arse cheek without severe pain. I thought i may have injected too high this time, however today i've been to my local walk in centre. i've been given CoAmoxiclav which is an aggressive antibiotic @ 625MG x 3 a day.
 
as you can see by the attached picture the dotted outline is what the male nurse drew on where its slgithly red. He said i need to take the antibiotics for 4 more days and if the redness spreads i may need to be admitted to hospital for introvenous antibiotics.
 
In Pink is where the actual injection went where its slightly bruised & in Black is where he reccomeded i inject should i continue on the other arse cheek.
 
im now sat on my arse in pain. guys , do you think i should give it a week before my next injection which is due tonight in my left cheek?
 
i followed all sterile procedures medi wipes , green for drawing and blue pins for injecting and also wiped the top of the vial before withdrawing.
 
i wanted to share this with you guys. Can any experienced members give me some pointers please as i'm only in week 2 of a 10 week cycle.

I have had one or two bad ones over the years, I put down to new injection sites and the type of AAS like Test Prop being very nasty for me, Never had any probs with Test E but not used Lixus.
How long you been using AAS mate. And yes that is to high if you did it where the black box is you must have hit you hip bone lol,

I injected where the pink box is, the nurse told me in future to inject further up. I too found this very strange advice.

Where to top of the dotted line is where I plan to do the next one but on the left cheek.

This is my 2nd cycle mate

Hi olliel , I'm already walking with a limp so I might wait til after this settles down.

Guys I'm goin to wait til next Monday to do another glute injection. - does everyone else agree to pin in the green circle ?
 
if you look on http://www.howtodoinjections.com/IM/glutes.html it shows the area for injection actually being in the black circle on my picture, i really need some guidance here as the below pic shows the injection point should be just above the arse crack which is where the nurse told me to do it, however i've been injecting lower...
 
i've drawn on the pic below in blue where i "think" the future injections should go ?

General rule i use in glute is to  half glute top to bottom, then across and use the upper outer quater,Never had any probs except for some gear takes longer to disperse than others.
  Yes agree with pining in green circle, or there about.Deffo wouldn't want to follow the male nurses suggestion, looks a bit high up and to the side although could be the angle of the pic.

my arse could become famous for newbies 'lol'
maybe if we get a general consensus this could be pinned or turned into an article, i wouldnt mind.
 
barndoor that website and the nurse seem to be saying the same thing however you have experience and i dont want to disregard that either.

I'd agree with your new circle. All I read about shooting in the arse and saw on clips all indicated higher up than you were (you looked pretty close to the sciatic nerve tbh).
 
I think as well it depends on how muscular you arse is too. If it's massive and ripped then the Dr's circle might be right. If it's not then lower down.
 
What's wrong with your thigh, you can see what you're doing better and have more control. Not of this bending round and stretching malarkey. You wouldn't put the paper behind you if you was going to write something. Same hand, same dexterity required.
 
Hope the med's work mate. Brave going to a drop in centre and explaining what you've been up to. How long did it take you to convince yourself that's what you were going to do?

Geordie on your picture, I would jab someone pretty much halfway between where you jabbed and the black circle, so a little further up and to the right from where you went in. I wouldn't go as high as per the black circle

Watch out for that sciatic nerve! 

This was my biggest fear, i havent hit it this time according to the nurse at the walk in centre, i also just got back from A&E for a 2nd opinion from the nurse there, she seems to think its more than likely a steril infection or a haematoma, the antibiotics i got should clear it up within a week.

i'm going to get my glutes sorted first mate then try another site once i've mastered this one, i get a friend to aspirate and inject i do the pinning, clearly i did it in the wrong place like a friggin idiot, live and learn!
 
i didnt think of 'shoud i go etc...' i simply went in and told the truth same for when i went to A&E an hour ago (i got seen to wihin 5 mins happy days)

i'll definitly take your expert advice i'll let you know how i get on with the 4th injection, i'm postponing it until monday, by then hopefully i'll have better movement and i'll be able to sit down (i dont want to not to be able to sit down)
 
Thanks for all your help guys, i GREATLY appreciate it.

If that's her 2nd opinion, I'd stick with the 1st one lol.
 
Anti-b's won't clear either. A sterile abcess is not bacterial so anti-b's are useless. A haematoma is just a collection of blood

Sorry just meant infection or Haematoma , I'll keep you fully updated. Maybe it's the gear ? It's ugl lixus , however it's probably just bad injection technique on my part or an infection my arse muscle is defo stiffer around the injection site compared to my left arse cheek

Hi Judas01,
 
Yeah tell me about it! newbie mistake eh!
 
i'm giving glutes one more go next week once this has calmed down, if i keep getting problems i'm doing my quads, might be asking you and Iron for a bit of support on this one. First i'll be doing a little research, there's a good video on Youtube i hear
