I hope this is OK here, I though it might be a good place to catch the experience of EB'ers
DD13 is having to have daily Clexane injections for the next 6 weeks due to being immobilized in broomstick casts. She has Factor V Leiden, so docs are worried about the potential for blood clots.
She's become a bit of an expert at needles lately, but had the first Clexane shot in hospital yesterday and cried at the pain. She's terrified at the thought of the next one, let alone 6 weeks of them. I know there would be lots of experienced clexane users here on EB, so thought I might tap into that.
I've thought of EMLA cream, though have been told by some that it really only helps where the needle goes in, not with the deeper pain/burning. Ay experience there?
Injection site tips? She is very slim, so hard to find anywhere with fat lol.
Has anyone else had to deal with this for a child?
