Yesterday was my first day back to work since surgery 5 days ago. In the rush to get ready, I nearly forgot my blood thinner injection! I’ve had a few questions about them so I decided to make a quick video of how I’ve been doing them and the setup of the injection.
Check it out below! Its pretty simple, really. Just grab the prefilled injection, clean injection area (spot with plenty of fat) with medical alcohol, remove syringe from package, press into cleaned area, holding the syringe with thumb and middle finger depress plunger with thumb slowly. With my shots, there is a spring that automatically retracts the needle and stows it safely inside once finished. Thats it!
