    Clexan is to stop blood clamor in the veins after surgery . Every day is the dose they can be injected painlessly with a small needle Ina injeor pen used by a lot of patients rathe than blood transfusions or risk complications to to blood cots formation. I was a bit sceptical at first too, it is not a big deal just pull tummy skin out place pre decide on prescribed dose measurement og the pen place on top of skin push the automatic injector ,mthe top is a spring like a ball point pen but wider in the size of the pen for easier grip.

    its that simple and no pain no stick very similar to the epi pen and your protected from any complications from blood clots always a concern from surgery!

    easy as pie once you do it the first time you'll easy as pie! 🍰 Well make that a cheese cake. 😉

    have a great day! 😊

    Hi - I just had ankle surgery this week and was also given 2 weeks worth of these shots. In the first 1-2 days it was quite hard to get the hang of it, and I had BIG bruises on my tummy, however, I was researching quite a lot of tips to inject properly for minimal side effects, you might also want to try:

    1. I always ice the area first for about 5 mins before AND after I inject, eversince I have done this, there as been basically no blood and no bruising. 

    2. Also try to inject on your outer upper thigh, to give your tummy a bit of a break!
