    Oil Abcess

    Has anyone ever experienced a long term oil abcess from frequent volumous injections into the same site? I've had them for a year and a half now. should i attempt to drain them myself?

    No it isn't a joke. I had my friend ex-ray my sholders last week, and nothing showed up. There is a cyst like lump on each of my shoulders, and it is very obvious when I flex. I would think it would show up on ex-ray if it were scar tissue, or a cyst. I'm thinking about trying to drain one myself. I don't want my doc exploring and trying to cut one out. I just want to avoid scars.

    The pockets of oil from my injections never stick around more than a week or so...the only place that gives me any trouble is my pecs....seems like your body would absorb or reject oil much quicker than 1.5 yrs.....did you just use 1 site for all your shots??..anyway, good luck...

    no, i had 50 mg EQ, and was rotating shots in each shoulder. About 2 cc's at once, 3 times a week in each one.

    Hmm, my eod shots were like 1.8 cc's in delts and I never had any problem,but I was only using 1 delt/week....3 times a week in the same site sounds a little harsh....

    If you really have an oil collection, it will show up on an ultrasound. Your doctor will likely get one of these before he starts sticking needles in places. You should avoid home drainage....no telling where the needle might end up.

    It sounds to be like bad scarring.

    Really? I would hope he would of known to rotate sites enough for that to be an issue.........that would be some major scarring. Wonder if that can be removed by surgery?

    Go see the doc. He will drain it with a needle.

    scar tissue wouldn't necessarily show up in xrays and thats sounds alot like what you have bro, a scar tissue "mass" more or less

    an abcess would have given you more problems by now like infection, pain or discomfort, or it would have went away on its own

    sorry to say it but most likely you have to make a choice-

    1 - live with it
    2 - get them surgically removed and have a surface scar but no lump or visible mass
