Swelling or Infection?
i shot on tuesday, 150mg of prop and 100mg of fast acting deca , which is 2.5 cc into my quad, now two days later its still pretty swollen, and its hot, which is a sign of an infection, all my **** was sterile and clean, so do you think this is an infection or jsut normal prop reaction? I just went to my doctor and she wants me to go to the emergrency room for bloodwork and possible iv antibiotics, is this bad news or wht?

Personally I would head the doctors advice. After Test Enanthate shots I tend to get huge golf ball size lumps in my a$$. They are painfull, hard and to some degree hotter than the surrounding tissue. But after about a week they tend to go away. Try massaging the heck out of it and keep a close eye on it. Just my .02

Is it red? How much does it hurt? Do you have a fever? Do you have any other medical problems?

Prop in the quad is a painful ordeal. I personally would wait a day or two and put a heating pad on it. If its doesn't subside by then take a trip to the E room. I just don't like people seeing that I am doing AS.

I have a friend that can't take prop. Everytime he shoots it (which hasn't been many) he turns red at the injection site and it swells alot.May be just a reaction. Its up to you but if it freaks you out that bad then maybe a doc will ease your mind....Good luck...Tattoo

Go to the ER Bro - cellulitis can mess you up - a bad case could kill you if not treated - go now

dermadoc has good questions
If it's showing signs like, alot of redness, if you have a fever, are any others problems follow. For most people, there bnodies form abcesses, swelling and hardening of tissue around injection site. Because it's a foreign agent entering the body, and this is just a natural reaction. Goes away in about a week, and usually returns with every injection. The other signs are what matter, and also, your doc should be able to prescribe the antibiotics without the blood work if she feels you need it. W/O blood work, they usually prescribe broad spectrum's, this is bad b/c it kill's your natural flora and lower's your immunities. Doc's don't usually like that, but they can do it.

i really don't think its an infection....there is no redness at all.....i have felt fine all week....its just sore....its from my first shot of test ever....also its 400mg which is a high dose for only 1cc.....the second shot i did with deca and the pain is almost all gone...it feels pretty good right now so im not really worried......it just has to be a natural reaction....thanks bros
