Bruised upper arm after only 3 injections of Clexane. Will have to start injecting in the legs soon.
The photos don't actually do my bruises justice, they are quite magnificent!
We were supplied with this bucket, to throw away the needles once used. We will give this to a chemist/pharmacy or my local doctor to dispose of it properly.
The injection! A painful necessity, it is vital that I inject myself for 2 weeks post surgery, as it works against the possibility of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) occurring. It things my blood. A necessary evil!
