2 weeks ago I had abdominal surgery to remove two tumours from my pelvis. We find out next week the results from biopsies.
Reason for my post it, since surgery I've been have the daily innohep tinzaparin sodium injections which my husband has been doing for me.. anyway, I'm meant to be having them right up until Xmas day but it's getting to the point where I'm really fed up - my stomache is awfully bruised all over from them and of course with the actual surgery scar which runs from above my belly button all the way down to my pubic bone aswell, my poor tummy is having a battering!
Are they really that necessary?!? I understand they're obviously given to you for a reason but I'm mobile, I'm out and about now, pipping to the shops a little and don't spend any time laying in bed just some rest on the sofa - do I really need to still be injecting?!
I have terrible stretch marks from two previous pregnancies and I'm putting it down to this as to why I'm so badly bruised from the needles. They are now really hurting when administered also and I'm in sing it hard trying to find a decent spot to even inject now!
Has anyone been prescribed these but given up and not had any bother or is it really important that I continue them???
Thanks in advance!
