I am 5 days into a 30 day course of injections twice per day. I gave myself an injection at 9am... It's now 1:30am; the injection site is still bleeding. I did the injection and showered. After showering I noticed the site was oozing so I placed a 4x4 gauze pad that I folded in half and taped into place. I attended a concert tonight and afterward went to remove the dressing, thinking I'd give myself the second injection of the day. But blood had soaked through the fold gauze and the AM site was still oozing, so I did not take the second shot. I'm concerned about this... It's a holiday weekend. I don't want to put myself at risk for a clot by not following Drs orders but with things as they are in thinking I'm at risk for other possible issues. Any input you can offer?
