Dang, Jim, I just used the last of my 1/2 cc, 31g syringes and replaced with 30g, 1/2" syringes!
One reason I did this is that the Bimix called for a starting dose of 1/2 ml which maxed out my syringes, and next that expert Dr. Mulhall recommended 1/2" needles(and fatter needles also, maybe 29g?) I have not used them yet, but when I do I guess maybe I should try to avoid going in all the way.
And I guess I'll blow off trying to aspirate blood(an old habit hard to break due to my profession) since seems no one else is doing that. It's great to hear about
your 100% success lately, fantastic! Even if on not that many times so far. I forget, are you using Trimix? How much? What kind of usable time are you getting?
Also, I really think next try for me is going to be with the pump, which should give me a little more room for error with the CC being already expanded a bit.
I'm going to talk to my pharmacist about
a stronger Bimix solution. My gut feeling still is that I did not miss with that injection, and I was already using .5 ml(50 units?). I guess I can increase it, but that is already a lot of volume. I hate for it to not work, because it was great to not have that pain. But if I have to go back to achey breaky junior, I will.
