WOW thanks for all the advice!
Firstly, our MS nurse did not actually show us that we had to use an alcohol wipe on the injection site, so we go straight for the kill. But thinking about it now, it should be sterile, I will query this with the Nurse on her next visit.
LoveActually: Please do not get all soppy! we must do what we can in life to help those who we love. I'm sure you would do the same if the tables were turned. But it’s always nice to know you have touched someone’s heart, I hope and pray that you get the best news ever that it something milder than MS.
patientx: We were advised the MS Nurse that the Auto-Injector isn't as good as made out to be, therefore manual injecting is better, however having said this, we were injection Beta Interferon previously with the Auto-Injector and it was quite easy. I admit it is very manual injecting without any aids and that leaves room for movement in depth penetration of the needle.
RedSonja: The bee-stings (burning sensation) has toned down dramatically according to my wife, although I did screw up and hit a small vessel in her thigh which cause a little bleeding, I felt so bad
but we got to do this right? I many query the MS nurse about the auto-injector on her next visit and she what she has to say, although I am quite comfortable doing the whole process manually. The Ice Pack helps a lot.
As for the Lumps, the nurse has told us to massage them as it will help to smooth them out. nothing much we can do about it apparently...
The other thing is; we have noticed the right side of her body, arms and thighs, are the sides that are most likely injection sites that bruise up... is that weird or just pure coincidence?????????
