... but it flowed out of the needle way too fast.. He has since developed a lump that feels attached, like w/ a cord, Dr. said, and extreme pain and numbing down his leg where siatica is. If I massage his legs and rub toward feet, the pain is unbearable til i rub the blood back up. He said he was getting a muscle cramp, but what I felt was a lump, in the quad, trying to travel toward his feet. White-hot pain. I literally stopped the lump and pushed it back up. I am so scared. He is having the small, injection site lump removed tomorrow, but I would like to know something now. Help! We believe the two lumps are related and it started w/ injection site.
My boyfriend received a testosterone injection improperly. We are not sure where she injected it,?

THE CYST-LIKE LUMP ON HIS REAR WAS CALLED A CALCIFIED-GROWTH. IT HAS BEEN REMOVED. BUT, LIKE I THOUGHT, THE HAND-SIZED LUMP IN THE QUAD ISN'T RELATED, B/C IT IS STILL THERE. NOT AS PAINFUL BUT THERE JUST THE SAME.

I USUALLY GIVE HIM THE INJECTIONS, A FRIEND, WHOM GOES TO COLLEGE TO BE A NURSE, DID IT ONCE IN MY ABSENCE. BIG MISTAKE
I don't believe thi is it, but watch that lump! Could be blood clot too. This is very dangerous. Is it red or warm to the touch? These would be signs. Good luck.
Hey,,I think that what he is feeling is a lump from the testosterone injection. I know, I've been receiving them, and now give them to myself for a few years now after I was diagnosed with Spinal Arachadontis. The nurse probably thought it was like any other type of medication, which u can push in real fast,but with Testosterone Cypionate with it being so thick and slow to even pull into the syring, it has to be pushed in at a very slow rate or u will receive a nice size lump,that makes u feel so sore to wear if u walk it will make u limp, and it hurts to sit, its so thick that it should've been messaged immediately afterwards, or take a hot shower and as bad as it hurts rub it in a circular motion so it can go wear it needs to go in the fat cells. These damn nurses think that doing everything fast as possible is a great thing, but not when it comes to something that I'm deff sure she doesn't inject to someone everyday, or even every week for that matter! A little bit of advise, if you can do it to urself, without having a problem with a needle? I asked my doctor after several times of this samething, it will go away in a cple days,still a lil sore,then it will take its course and the lump[bruise]will go completely away, I promise! Trust me,,I know it sucks,and u can probably bearly walk, or lay down only on the other side wear she gave u the injection! Anyway, just pull ur doctor aside, try to not embarass his nurse,or her nurse, they will appreciate you doing that. Just tell them u have a personal ? for he or she! Just tell ur doctor what happened,,and just say if u wouldn't mind will u please let me inject my own shots to myself? They shouldn't have a problem with it. My doctor writes my script out for my Testosterone Cypionate, I give myself a shot 1 time every 2 weeks. There's a few places in ur body that is good for testosterone injections. So, just ask ur doctor if they wouldn't mind showing u all the diffrent area's, and just do it urself there for u NEVER GO THRU THIS AGAIN!! Seriously,,no big deal!! I'm 38 years old now, and been giving myself my own shots since 2008. They write you a script for the write needles, and dispsal for ur needles, and they will give u the alchol wipes,,the whole nine. So,,if I was u that's what id ask my doctor about 1st thing, unless u like going thru this,,cuz trust me,,it will happen again by another nurse!! Anyway,,I hope this helps,,don't worry it will go away shortly!! Sucks,,I know!! Anyway,,good luck to u
