    This should be interesting. Any idea how long you plan on doing this heavyiron?

    Sorry if I stepped on Foremans apportunity to answer that question...
    I agree, I have never given or taken an oil based subq nor ever heard of one so it is up for debate. However it is an interesting idea and I would love to hear about real life experiences of this route of steroid use.

    I will run this at various doses and using different esters until I feel I have answered my questions. I am interested to see how long the depot is felt under the skin and how painful this will compare to IM injections. I also would like to see if this frequent small dose administration reduces acne. There is also the issue of scar tissue with multiple IM injections so this may be a route for those who want to avoid scar tissue in the muscle. I also want to experience this so I can advise others on its use, particularly women. I imagine I can have a pretty decent working knowledge of this in a few weeks.


    Day 2
    Yesterdays injection site is still sore to the touch and I can feel a very small inflamed area. I injected 40mg of prop 2 inches to the left of my belly button subq this morning and felt no pain during the injection.

    Day 3
    Both sites are still a little sore and inflamed. It feels different shooting sub q vs IM. I shot another 40iu and I barely felt the inject a few minutes ago.

    If any of that imflamation persist or increases might try some warm compresses. I've been giving this some more thought as far as side-effects, Cellulitus may be a possible problem to watch for.
    What have you done today to insure your success tomorrow?!

    A subq inject is a little different. The pin should never penetrate the muscle at all. Additionally, the volumes I am using are quite small, 4/10ths of a cc. Here is an illustration of a subq inject. I am using a 29 guage 1/2" pin.

    I see, I don't have any redness at any injection sites. I have slight localized swelling though.

    Day 4
    Pinned another 40iu test P subq in my stomach. I still have some minor swelling but very little pain.

    I will definately look out for infection but there is no redness and my temperature is normal.

    90 degree angle for injection, 45 degree angle if the pt has low body fat

    The Procedure.

    1. Inform patient of the procedure and obtain consent


    2. Check the five Rights and prepare and check the medication. In most institutions both nurses must check and sign for the medications.

    3. Subcutaneous injections can be given at a 90 degree angle or at a 45 degree angl
    e

    4. Normal practice is to give the shot straight in at a 90 degree angle if 2 inches of skin can be grasped between the nurses thumb and first (index) finger

    5. However, if only one inch of skin can be grasped the it is safer and less painful to give the injection at a 45 degree angle

    6. Remove the alcohol with from the container

    7. Cleanse the area where you plan to give the injection. Allow the area dry.

    8. Remove the cover of the needle from the syringe

    9. Hold the syringe in your writing hand and pull the cover off with the other hand

    10. For a 45 degree angle injection hold the syringe with your dominant hand

    11. Then place the syringe between your thumb and your index and second fingers. The needle should be pointing to the skin at the 45 degree angle.

    12. For a 90 degree angle injection hold the syringe with your dominant hand

    13. Then place the syringe under your thumb and first finger. Let the barrel of the syringe rest on your second finger. Some people hold a pen in this manner.

    14. Hold the skin with the hand not holding the syringe. Holding the syringe barrel tightly using your dominant hand, use your wrist movement to inject the needle. Sometimes the needle goes in easily. At other times people have tougher skin and a little more pressure or force is used.

    15. Push the plunger down to inject the medication into the patient

    16. Gently withdraw the needle at the same angle you put it in...also release the pinched skin as you remove...better yet release it right before you remove the needle

    17. Finally, wipe the area with the dry sterile gauze 2 x 2 pad

    18. Dispose the syringe and needle in the sharps container, or in a used container of MUSCLETECH WEIGHT GAIN HARDCORE.
