Missed Swollen hand

SWIM started using his hands recently. SWIM happed to miss in his hand for the first time last night. SWIMs hand has been hurting and is pretty swollen. SWIM has been researching and can't figure out if this happens sometimes or if SWIM should be worried about it.

Re: Missed Swollen hand

SWIM resorted to using her hands when dodgy gear messed up her arms to the point of no use. In the hand its difficult to get all the liquid in the vein theres always some escaping of the fluid around the vein for SWIM and SWIM has a few nasty hard lumps left over. The hand swells up for about 3/4 days and will return to normal if left alone which can be hard if the arms cant be used.
is there anyway SWIY could go back to the arms?? The hands not nice and hard to hide too

Re: Missed Swollen hand

I wouldnt worry unless it doesnt go away by the next day. Swim has missed a few times and it always goes away eventually with no lasting problems.....

Re: Missed Swollen hand

While it's considered less 'safe' for various medical reasons, veins in many people's feet are just as easy to access as those in their hands. From a non-detection perspective, these are indeed much 'safer' than the hands, but you'll be a limpin' and otherwise miserable fool if you miss.

Re: Missed Swollen hand

In my cat's experience, a swollen hand was nothing to worry about. She always THOUGHT she had a vein, but apparently not because the hand swelled every time. Eventually my cat wised up and decided to go back to areas she could hit easily. Give it time. It might be a good idea to relocate your injection site. Hands a shitty thing to not be able to use.

Re: Missed Swollen hand

Thanks everyone the swelling went down. SWIM can't go back to the arms especially after learning about vein collapse. SWIM is going to make sure he hits for now on. Part of his problem is a rig so old he can't pull the plunger back one handed someone else has to do it. So feet might be SWIMs answer.

While everyone's pets have the necessary bag of old rig tricks, ranging from sharpening them on a matchbook to oiling the plunger with things as nasty as earwax, in the internet age there is no reason for such drastic measures except in drastic circumstance. Your African Three-Banded Macaque can buy as many brand new syringes as it could ever need safely and securely and privately and inexpensively online, and should. My bird is real glad every time one of the many problems the doper experiences is solved, and has hundreds of new rigs on hand at all times, throwing them away after each use just like the HR folks have always advised. Big change from the 'reuse until it falls apart' days, and a welcome one.

Be careful the first time you try your bird's foot, and use an insulin pin.

Needle Exchange Program!!! Obviously, they don't "Advertise" and often keep a low profile, but they are around. SwiS has one about 45min from his home, but he used deformed shitty old pins for a couple years before he discovered it.......

Look For It....Start w/ swiYour County Health Dept.(or whatever it's called where swiY live). Stay Anon, but go ahead and ask an advisor or HIV prevention counseler and they can help swiY.

Really....Take this Seriously! because it IS SERIOUS. The exchange programs usually have Alcohol swabs, anti-biotic ointment, gauze, etc. They will also have ways to properly dispose of swiYour pins. SwiS always takes his in (they get funding for more used ones brought in).

Anyway, swiS wasn't trying to run a commercial, but just say, make sure to research it....better than jamming some year old, dull, rusted, pipe into swiYour arm! If the swollen hand was bad (swiS has had it many times), a bunch or nasty abscess's will be a nightmare!

Re: Missed Swollen hand

Please consider to post a picture. This will give people that consider injecting in hands and wrists a heads up on how tough it is when it goes wrong.

Re: Missed Swollen hand

SwiS is really sorry about repeating himself, but wanted to make sure any Newb would understand to look around: "Needle Exchange Program" !!!

Free, Anonymous, could be a life saver...seriously.
