I have the pens and the nurse that gave me/ trained me with the loading dose 1 week ago warns of the plunger very easily being activated. I found the needle didnt hurt on the pen at all it was the meds getting injected that burned like the dickens. We warmed them to room temp, she did the 1st with no ice pack on my leg since some patients dont have the burning sensation to see if I am one that may get relief from the ice pack. Well it burned so we ised the ice pack on that leg again for the 2nd shot and the other leg for the remaining 2 and I found that the icing of my leg for 10 - 15 minutes didnt help the burning sensation at all. I was fearing the pain would be like the spring loaded imitrex shots which actually left a large bruise on my leg from even the sample teaching pen with no needle.
They cant use my belly since it cannot be near stretch marks or scars. I have that fistula/abscess area under my belly button and many new stretch marks from the pred and fluids from my hospital stays this year I have much more available fat on my legs that are further away from stretch marks. When it comes time for me to have a child I wont have much room left for stretch marks, I have them on my butt, breasts, upper arms, stomach, over my pelvic nether regions, as well as both thighs and the calves of my legs. Thighs are on both inner and outer
