Testopel And Alternating Insertion Sites

I've been on testopel for 10 yrs. This past Friday I had another placement. This is by far the worst ever. Within 2 hours after the procedure the incision site was still bleeding and below the insertion site was completely black and painful. 24 hours later the area was dark red and hot to the touch. 48 hours later the discoloration was alternating between dark red, light red and purple, still warm to touch and swollen. I have been having non stop pain not only in the incision area but also in my legs, calves and feet, but also in my lower back/kidney. Dr. Prescribed me Norco for discomfort but no relief. Currently my symptoms are the same, bit more painful. The only thing I can think of is that they didn't alternate sides and that it may he causing issues. Is this possible? This is beyond the normal bruising and pain that I have had in the past.

just found ur post, my first time here.been on testopel for about 5 differant injections. mine always did what yours was doing, this last one I treated with ice packs for about 3 days. was healed in a week and a half.
My only problem with the testopel, is its not a steady release. I have alot of highs and lows in mood. mostly effecting my libedo. it can be a problem. my wife has more trouble with it then I do. Im not trying to be funny, it is an issue. just woundering if anyone else has mood swing with their onjections.

Man I just had my first insertion of 12 pellets and no pain no bruising. So does pain and bruising happen after 24 hrs because it has been about 24 hrs. It sounds like your doctor may have hit a nerve?

It is possible that the injection site has become infected, so you should probably have your doctor take a look at it to be sure. You may need an antibiotic, or other medical intervention.

Ben, mood changes can be a normal side effect of Testopel administration, since it is a hormone. Other side effects may include headache, hypersexuality, hair growth changes, and irritability. If it is causing an issue for your wife, you might want to ask your doctor what they'd suggest you do to possibly resolve the issue, you may need more medical intervention.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Re: VerFree (# 3)

I had the same issue after one my procedures, it was an infection of the implant site. Antibiotic was prescribed and it cleared up in a few days. The only issue I notice is that the effect fades a lot about 30 days before next procedure is due.
