I had Lovenox both pre and post op in my lower abdomen... I got huge bruises at both sites and now (almost two weeks out) my entire lower abdominal area feels both sore and numb (it's odd).

I did through my IV about a hour before surgery and every 8 hours after that during my stay in the hospital. Once I got home for the first 14 days I have to administer Lovenox injections 2 times a day.
