Did anyone inject with Lovenox after surgery



Recommended Posts

I have to inject myself daily for 6 weeks with Lovenox because I had cancer and finished cancer treatment? did anyone else have to do this Why did you? And any sideeffects? The best thing I see is that Ill have no worries about blood clots so its like being extra safe cause my body has been through so much I know it will take me longer to heal.

My doctor told me I'll need to do them when I have surgery to make sure I don't get blood clots after... Not looking forward to it but I hear the needles are very small and it's not bad... I think he said I'll only have to do it for like 2 weeks after surgery though...

I had to do this for 2 weeks following surgery twice a day. I did not notice any side wffects besides the brusing on my stomach. I have to say I was very happy when it was over. My Dr. does this as standard protocal following gastric surgery.

Yes......I had to do them for 14 days following surgery. Sometimes they burned really bad for a short time; other times not an issue. Just so glad to be done and grateful that my team wanted to be extra cautious at preventing blood clots.

I had one before surgery and one after. Both in the hospital. The needle didn't hurt but the medicine burned and I bruised.
