    Prop injection pain caused swelling for DAYS


    Ok, so as the title say's i'm having issues with test prop. I'm currently taking 150mg eod (i have another thread of my complete cycle and diet) and on saturday i got a shot in my shoulder. Normally its been taking around 4-6 days for the shot pain to go away but this shoulder shot seemed to be different. After getting the shot i threw a hot pad on to try and dissapaite the oil in my shoulder and it seemed to work fairly well. However the next day my entire bicep was warm, red and SWOLLEN.... My bicep is still swollen today making it day 5 of no shot in that arm.


    I'm really getting concerned what to do, seeing as i can't workout because of the horrible pain and swelling.

    any advise would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    From your post, your putting at least 1 1/2 cc of propionic acid ester in your shoulder.

    That is a small area with far less blood flow, than say your quad or glute.

    Generally, propionic acid esters are uncomfortable at any injection site b/c of the nature of the carboxylic acids.

    My advice would be to stop injection in small muscles. If you are going to drop 1 1/2 cc EOD, cut the injection with the addition of some extra oil. I like cottonseed. Next rotate glutes stay out of your shoulders.

    The only problem with that is that i have to inject at least 4 times a week and i don't want to reuse injection sites. Where does one go about getting seterile cottonseed oil?

    You can also rotate injection sites on each glute itself.

    find some new gear bro. you gotta have super smooth prop if you want to shoot EOD for any length of time. otherwise just use long estered - it works the same.

    Ya some sources use too high BA which will cause some pain. You can counter this by cutting your prop with sterile oil which you can either make yourself or buy online at some research sites. Personally my favorite prop was with 50% EO in it, smoothest stuff I've ever run.

    Oh and for injection sites I usually just do as follows: L Quad, R Delt, R Quad, L Delt...but if I'm using more then 10cc/wk then I'll also throw glutes into the line up.

    Its an understatement when you say "some pain".. Id like to think of myself as a fairly tough person but i just put 2cc's in my R quad 2 days ago and i hurt worse today than i did yesterday, so much so that i can't workout properly.

    Thanks for the rotation schedule tho.. I think i'm gonna do that with glutes and hope for the best unless i switch to sust all together.

    Pretty much pain free. Sust should be VERY smooth.
