I've done various injections on myself since I was diagnosed, and occasinally there is a bit of fluid leakage - like a little drop of fluid!
I've also had it when nurses have done it, so I wouldnt worry :)
thanks !! I wanted to ring the district nurse but wanted to makre sure I wasnt over reacting
yeh i also have to give myself injectiongs to keep my neutraphil count up, and yes at times the fluid does come back out the hole... lol...
i wouldnt worry to much
What a nice lady you are. My wife and daughter banished me to the closet and I had to do them myself. Mind you I think I probably preferred it that way. Don't remember leaks, but my sturdy physique makes it difficult to see the wounds.
Hope your partner's treatment is going OK. Is he coming up for a stem cell harvest or is this just a white cell booster that I didn't get.
I'm a chemo for nhl veteran, but now negotiating the return to work.
I had them as white cell boosters after infections. The bone ache wasn't much fun.
Hope things are still progressing
ooo you lot are sooo brave.....no way could i give myself those injections...eeek....id faint / throw up just opening the packet up....district nurse came and did mine, and then i kept my eyes closed all the time.....o yes i sure got aching bone syndrome but they gave me something to help with that....
When I had G-CSF, the district nurse did the injections for me (too complicated with all the preparation!). However, I now have to have daily injections for the next 6 months because of clots in my lung, so I have learned to do these myself in order to keep a little independence. I've also noticed that quite often a drop of fluid comes out of the hole when I remove the needle but I haven't worried about it! Good luck - it's horrid to have to inject yourself but I think it must be much worse to inject someone else!
