    wasted shot?

    just wondering if I wasted an injection. When i pulled the needle out i must've hit a vessel or something and quite a bit of blood came out of the injection site. I was just wondering if the injection was wasted or it was absorbed into the muscle enough. i was injecting 3 cc's and pulled out after 1.5 cc's to inject into a different site. They were both in the glute area 1.5" needle deep

    By this point im sure you didnt actually inject into a vein, or you would be in serious trouble.

    So NO it should not have been wasted, you most likely hit a vessel/vein while penetrating.
    Happened to me before, nothing to worry about.

    You've been here for 5 years and you're asking this question?
    Let me guess, you just come around for a few weeks each spring.

    And no, you didn't lose any oil.

    He's on his yearly spring cycle, so I'm sure he's plenty big right now

    That happened to me a couple of times as well.
    Did it shoot out like it was under pressure?
    What I think happened to me is the neddle passed strait through a vein so when the needle was pulled out the blood squirts out due to pressure in the veins.
