Will Trimix still work if you forgot to put it back in the refrigerator?

D'oh!
On the way home from the Uro I put the Trimix in my down vest pocket wrapped in bubble pack. Remember, this is Rochester where the temp is within +/-2 deg of freezing. When I got home, I hung up my vest and forgot about the Trimix. My house temp is never above 69F and gets down to 59 at night. It has been 36 hours.
Is it still good? Am I the first person in the world to do this?

Jeff,

Just in case, you might want to ice down the application site for an hour or so.  That ought to make up for it !

I tried the 0.12 ml dose and it worked about the same as the 0.08. Nothing usable but definitely an encouraging reaction. I figure the stuff is still good.

I don't know about you guys but, to me, nothing spoils the mood faster than the sight of a syringe- unless you are an IV drug abuser. The whole process seems very clinical.

Hey GoodLife
It is snowing now so I just hung it out the window. There's more than one way to get stiff.

Hi Jeff,

Is it a 5ml vial or a pre-filled syringe that the Uro gave you ? The meds should be ok.

Your right about the sight of a needle entering anyplace. I have been using an auto injector and have to say it is much more pleasant that simply inserting a needle, plus I am able to much more accurately aim exactly where I enter

You can dramatically increase your success rate if you hold the base with your left hand, preventing blood from entering or exiting the penis. Inject with the right hand, then massage the area where you injected while pressing the alcohol wipe for approx 60 seconds. For me that works every time. This process may be impossible if you are using just a syringe, the auto injector allows for one hand administering of shot and meds
Stats:
Age: 52, PSA (2008)=1.9
Biopsy on 01/09/09, Gleason Score = 3+3
One (1) out of twelve (12) cores was positive, plus external nodule found
Surgery (Da Vinci, robotic prostatectomy): 4/7/09
Post Op Path 3+3
Removed Catheter: 04/19/09
100% bladder control - Pad free 7/09
PSA 7/09 undetectable, <0.01 - 3 months post-op
PSA 1/10 undetectable, <0.01 - 9 months post-op

Hey Mr. Gimpy,

I got a 5 ml vial that is good until the end of April. Now let's see - at 0.15 per shot that is about 35 shots worth.

I will try the trick of holding around the base- maybe I'll use a rubber band. With the syringe I need three hands. One hand to hold my penis to the side, one hand to hold the syringe and the third hand to control the plunger.
Veridian Dynamics has a solution for this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkkHyfLLR54

I suppose I'll just have to admit that I need a little help and make it a family project out of it.

The weather service is expecting a "snow hurricane" starting tomorrow. Friday will be the perfect time to try again. This time I will go to 0.16.
