The Lupron is given in my thigh and really doesn't hurt much, although I have some nice bruises to show off right now. The Gonal-F is given in the abdominal area. That's not too awful either. Steve is so happy that he doesn't have to inject them for me. I feel better doing it on my own: 1) I'm in control of my own pain; 2) Steve's description of "just throw it in like a dart" kinda scared me (although true to some degree); and 3) hello, I am a nurse--why totally waste all of my training even if I no longer take care of patients??
