My weekly package from Schraft's, a Walgreens SpecialityPharmacy, arrived this morning. Everything appeared to be in order. Two vials of Delestrogen. Yep. Syringes. Check. Needles. Wow. This can't be right. This isn't like the 30g 1/2" needle I used for my trigger shot. This says 23g 1 1/2" needle. An inch and one half, circumference the size of pencil lead. Dear God, I can see the pointy end at the end of the needle designed to pierce flesh. This is no needle, this is a lance. You could go spear fishing with this thing. Depress plunger, catch shark. This has to be a mistake.
We all make mistakes. I'm a little surprised that my reliable RE would make such a big one, had to be Schraft's, a Walgreens SpecialityPharmacy.
My voicemail to my RE: "Hi, it's Melanie. I received my package from Schraft's. Thanks so much for calling it in. It looks like they sent me the wrong needles. Heh, Heh. These are really big. Heh, Heh. So if you would just call in the correct size, that would be great. No need to call me back. Thanks."
They called back. No mistake. I pleaded, cajoled, complained. No mistake. Ensure shot is in upper outside quadrant of rear end. Avoid sciatic nerve. Oh, okay. They taught me all about it in law school.
Dr. Google reveals no instructional videos for Delestrogen shots. I've found no testimonials from successful givers/receivers of Delestrogen shots. I fear they're all in comas. Or worse.
