So Friday night we (by we I mean, I)  started an additional injection, it’s given name is Ganirelix. Hence forth, GaniHELLISH. Let-me-tell-you. While the needle is same length as the easy as pie Gonal-F it is a thicker gauge. This morsel of information went unnoticed until the needle was forcibly shoved into my stomach. It makes me bleed, bruise, and leaves a hole. And another thing. This shot comes in a pre-filled syringe with a needle already on it. Whoever manufactures these needles does a really suck ass job at it. One of the syringes accidentally rolled off the nightstand and stabbed into the carpet, I pulled it out and proceeded to wipe the needle with an alcohol pad. I was alarmed to discover that the tip of the needle snagged all the fibers on the pad. What the hell? Does the effing needle have a hangnail? Do they all? I think they do, which is why they hurt like hell. Why the injection location continues to sting like a (BIG EXPLETIVE) for a good 10-15 minutes I may never know. (Oh, and SUPER NURSE if you read this, I did not use that syringe…I’m saving that one for last so maybe we won’t have to use it…it seems germy now.)
