I know my experiences aren't so common. I had EXCELLENT doctors administer my epis (and it was a different once/different hospital each time). My first the problem was my back injury, the second was just a bad reaction to the dosage I guess, and the third was due to there being so much swelling that it was hard to find where the epi was supposed to go. So, keep that in mind--probably won't happen to you, but yeah, I guess anything is possible. that's why they make you sign that waver saying you understand the epi comes with risks such as possible paralysis or death. They have to cover their butts, but that doesn't mean those risks are common!

oh yeah, and catheters suck. but I had to be on one this time regardless of the epi.
