Lovenox injection site options
You definitely do not want to inject into any area that was part of the surgical field. Discuss this with your PS, usually the thigh is accessible to you and will be a better absorption area for effective treatment.
Mommy make-over - where to inject Lovenox
- You are right to question the hematology nurse -
- Please don't inject in the abdomen. It could damage your surgery and absorption might be poor.
- You should be able to inject it in the hip or thigh -
- Have your plastic surgeon or the hematologist tell you where.
