Sus injection. Did I do something wrong?
I've done my first ever injection.
It was easy an painless, but after about 12 hours, the swelling started and the pain too!
For the next two days I could hardly walk. It's getting better now ( 3 days later ) but still very painful.
After losts of research, these are the steps I took:
Location, thigh: http://www.spotinjections.com/index3.htm
Used two 23 needles. One to load and another to inject.
Remove any air from syringe.
Warm-up the oil to flow easier.
Clean the site with swab.
Strech the skeen and insert the needle (1 inch) all the way, but 2-3 millimeters.
Aspirate and found no blood.
Injected very slow (total time, about 40 sec).
Removed the needle, clean the site and massage for a couple of minutes. Went to gym and cycled for 30 min.
After about 12 hours, from the injection site down to the knee, it started swelling and the pain set in.
What did I do wrong?
