I pinned 1.5mL of 250mg/mL test cyp in my quad on Sunday morning. Next day I felt a little pip but nothing major. It has gradually gotten worse all week. It was hurting so bad yesterday that I had to go to prompt care and have it looked at. Dr said I have a fairly large hematoma and cellulitis. Leg is swollen from quad to ankle and red as hell. Hurts like a bitch too. Received script for pain pill and antibiotic.
I pin in my quads all the time and haven't had a problem since I learned proper technique and correct sites on the quad to pin. I use a 27g x 1/2 inch needle and that has usually worked fine for me since I have very little fat on my quads. Any ideas on what the hell caused this? I use pretty sterile technique cleaning the vial and the area. Do you think maybe the 1/2" needles aren't long enough? I sure don't want this happening again -- I have enough shit wrong with me the way it is. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
