In March switched from Vivaglobin to Hizentra for hypogammaglobulinemia related to multiple myeloma. No problems with Vivaglobin, but +/- once a month I form these nodules that last a couple of months and then go away. Two weeks ago switched from 3-site to 4-site, hoping to stop the nodules. Oncologist says the sites got inflamed and calcified. Not painful, but a little sore. Anyone else have this?

I also switched from Vivaglobin to Hizentra around the same time. I did not get as many nodules with vivaglobin. I felt that it spread out more under my skin than Hizentra does. I started to softly massage the injection site after my injections. It obviously hurts a tiny bit but it helps the liquid spread. Also, I was told if you put a heating pad on your sites it spreads faster too. I don't have a heating pad yet so I can't say how true it is. My nodules stay for weeks! I still have one from a month ago.
