Have you ever put the needle in and then not been able to push the medicine?
Almost like there is something blocking it? This has happened to me twice recently and never happened any other time I was on Lovenox. Both times I had to remove the needle and restic myself. I was less than thrilled about that!
I've had a similar thing happen, I rotate the needle and try again and usually it works. Could be that the open part of the needle is obstructed by something. That's always my thought. I do the same thing when I start to inject and it stings more than usual, I just rotate the needle 180 degrees and try again. Another thing that sometimes works, is to pull it out a teensy bit and try again super slow, once again with the thought that at that exact location there must have been something obstructing the needle's opening.
maybe you hit some scar tissue from previous injections? I have hit a couple spots where I really had to push hard on the plunger to get it in.
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
Glad to know I am not the only one who has experienced this. It struck me as so strange because it never happened last pregnancy. I cannot just push through it, that creeps me out for some reason! I will try turning the needle next time!
