I'm four weeks into my first cycle and think I got an abscess in my glute, maybe both :(
Going to the ER now just to verify, done loads of reading already and pretty convinced it's a sterile abscess. Let me list the events/symptoms hopefully u guys can maybe advise a bit.
Been receiving my pins from a pharmacist who was recommended to me by a mate from the gym, kinda assumed he'd know what he was doing, but guess not. Though he has been using swabs on my body but not on the vile.
I started the cycle taking 1ml EOD of nandrolone and weekly pins of test propionate 1ml. But half way through week 2 I increased to 2ml for both
One of the pins he gave me at the start of week two was kinda painfull on entry and I clenched up, even as he pushed the plunger I remember it hurting. Didn't have this pain with the previous pins, remember thinking he was a bit high up this time (this maybe irrelevant). Anyway for the next like 4 days I had a bit of swelling oblong in shape, cheek was all red and bit warm and itchy. So I started reading up on abscess on this forum.
For the last two nights I've been put a hot water bottle on it and massaging, this seemed to help and the swelling has went down a bit and not itchy. But this morning when I woke up I found like a small lump on the cheek which is now making me think abscess.
It's not really painfull, if i touch it then it hurts a little bit
Am writing this while waiting in the ER and have just been told to return later (over in Saudi at the moment working)
Going to grab some antibiotics, can anyone advise on brand, strength and dosage?
Hopefully am just freaking out and it's nothing, but better to be safe than sorry. Will go back to hospital later tonight.
Was thinking about just coming clean about my cycle or playing sat on some pins card while on a construction site
What would symptoms for an abscess be? It's not hot or irritated or overly painfull? Could I be freaking out over some excess oil that needs a good massage, since I did increase the dose and not really been massaging too much after pinning. More of a quick rub
Thanks in advance for your time and comments
