    Hi @Btaxi NHS guidance is that you talk to your Doctor about the fact you are on blood thinners before having the injection, see below

    Hopefully others will connect with you and share their thoughts and experiences with you

    Kind regards

    Hi @Btaxi do let us know what the Dr says it might help someone else.

    I hope it really helps. They don't like to do them too often. My EX MIL used to have them and they lasted her much longer than 3 months. Maybe you'll be lucky too🤞

    Best of luck
