    Injected 1cc of air into my glute. Am I in danger?

    Giving myself an injection tonight and was distracted by my wife and daughter arguing in the other room and accidentally injected 80mg of test with 1cc of air I forgot to squeeze out of the syringe. Is this dangerous if the air bubble gets into the blood stream?

    1cc of air will simply be absorbed by the surrounding muscle tissue.

    When I was in the hospital last, I had these damn hiccup attacks, like 9 or ten hiccups in a row, nothing I could do about it. this went on for about 4 days. it was explained to me that when they open you up, air gets in. when they stitch you back together, it is nearly impossible to remove all the air. the hiccups continue until the air is reabsorbed.

    you are g2g

    If you were going to have a problem, you would have it by now in my opinion... However, your post also suggests that you are not aspirating, because if you were, you would have noticed all the air while eye balling the pin for blood... Had that air went into a vein, you would not be posting right now lol.

    Why? And why are you guys using such large syringes for TRT?

    doc told him it helps hold in the oil. 3ml is pretty standard for a 20 gauge syringe

    For TRT a 1ml syringe or less is ideal to accurately measure the small dosages used.

    To hold oil I just leave syringe in place for a good 30 sec after injecting and it's been working like a charm for over a year now. Either way, the air won't hurt, just seems excessive.

    well i'm in a really small town, and i believe the pharmacy gets their syringes from the ranch supply store next door so that might play a part.

    not even joking

    Dave,
    That's really a good idea.

    What I do is purposely draw a bubble of air into the syringe. When I invert to inject, I tap to drive bubble to the rubber. The bubble serves to drive in ALL the test in the syringe. I learned that on this forum.

    I use to use a bubble with the slip tip but now I use syringes with an attached tip labeled as 'no dead space'.

    It would take at least 30 ml of air injected IV to risk causing any issues. Stop worrying about air bubbles.
