Okay, so there I was poised and proud of myself that I had managed 13 of the 14 injections post TKR uneventfully. Yes this was the finally one.
So I pull the end of the last needle and sudenly realise I'm holding it in the wrong place. The plunger comes out, liquid starts coming out all over my hands. I put it back together hastily and end up without about a quarter of an injection left which I administer.
Then I start panicking, ring the GP, who is happy to prescribe one injection. He says he doesn't think it matters but why take a risk that if I should get a clot we would never forgive ourselves for.
Fact: tomorrow is Good Friday, no chemists in the area can get the injection in until Saturday. Small print says that if you forget a dose you should never double on the same day and I've already had a quarter dose today. So the last one will be Saturday, maybe 36 hours late.
Question - can anyone reassure me and calm me down please?
