Abscess :'(

Hi guys

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

    If it's sterile then there is no bacterial infection so antibiotic use is futile.
     
    If it's an infection then you will get increasing symptoms...
     
    1) The size of the redness/inflammation will become bigger.   - Draw around the perimeter with a pen to guage this over time
    2) Localised pain will likely increase along with inflammation and swelling
     
    3) You may also start to feel a bit sh1tty.
     
    From your post it sounds more like injection trauma coupled with irritation from the oil which steadily subsides over a period of a few days
     
    If it is indeed a bacterial infection you will need anti-b's:

    maybe
    Fluclox 2gram ed (split)- 7 days

    Think am just freaking out, the lump from this morning is kinda disappearing

    Reckon I should chill for a couple of days, if things seem to get worse will go have it checked out.

    Am due my first pin of trenbolone today too. Want to take it :).

    Pharmacy guy said was nothing but some oil needing massaged so will keep doing that for couple days.

    Am guessing if it was an abscess it would be really inflamed, red and painfull, especially as it would be in muscle

    Thanks PB
     
    feels like the symptoms have got less, so hopefully this rules out an infection.  I do have flu like symptoms but put this down to either just from cycle or due to my GF and loads of people at work having a wee virus at the moment.
     
    swelling and redness has definitely subsided over the last couple of days.
     
    will see how it progresses over the next couple days
     
    kinda well ruined my buzz over the last few days lol

    Flu like symptoms do it for me.
     
    I had one from bunk UG gear and I had a few days of being red and hot with spreading lump. But then on day ~3/4 I think I deteriorated really badly, tried to ride it out for a night but had to head to A&E.
     
    Can't reccomend dosages or anything but get on them ASAP.

    tbh mate a lot of us at one point freak out about an abcess. sometimes the oil just does not disperse that quickly. hot baths, rubbing the area work best for me.
     
    my source also sells antibiotics and i do tend to have some on hand just in case lol but as PB says if it's sterile then antibiotics really won't do anything. best bet is to massage the area, heat it up to thin the oil and get it dissipated quickly which is not taht easy if you're on a heavy cycle or like some folk only have 1 injection site! 
     
    if i'm injecting 2 or 3 compounds i'll try and get a blend so i'm getting it all in 1ml of oil to reduce the amount i need to disperse into the muscle.

    arse about face aye .....lol
     
    thanks ninja.
     
    been massaging and hot water bottling and seems to be helping.  Lumps gone and iv pinned each glute with 1ml again the other day and the technique does help the oil disperse a bit quicker. 
     
    Am due to pin today also, so will do a wee blend and bang in 1ml in each glute.  What I was wondering is that if there is still oil not fully dispersed am I better waiting another day before doing another pin?  or should I just crack on, and keep the AAS levels up in the system
     
    only pinning my glutes, should maybe consider another couple of sites I guess.
     
    thanks for the responses guys :)

    loads of people inject only into the same two sites man and tbh sometimes the lump you feel is actually just the muscle remembering that it was pushed about by the oil, the oil itself is long gone. so no need to find new sites at least you have two - the number of people who can only pin one side is shocking lol. even on an eod cycle you're looking at 5 days before using the site again. just either rub the area after injection. or sit in a bath with bubbles and scented candles later that night to help it disperse or alternatively keep the vial in your pocket for a bit to heat the oil up before injection, it'll inject easier and being at body temperature will disperse easily.
     
    it's good that your first reaction was to post on here before heading to A&E. we've all freaked out for exactly the same reason and just a few minor adjustments to your injection routine can take a good bit of the worry away.

    i like pec shots personally. 
     
    single handed, is easy and you can see what you're doing. first couple of times you feel like nicholas cage in "the rock" but after that it's all good. can easily bang 2ml into my pecs
     
    i ALWAYS hit a nerve doing quads!! once i sent the syringe across the floor my leg kicked that badly lol
