Operation Jellyman Kelly: Lupron Injections

DISCLAIMER: Any blog posts titled "Operation Jellyman Kelly" will no doubt gross you out. These posts will describe our current treatments for if you have a weak stomach or don't know how you'd have a conversation with me in person after reading this....stop reading now. ; )


I started Lupron injections 2 nights ago.....


I'd heard that these shots hurt and was hoping I'd be one of the lucky women that didn't experience the pain and/or side effects from these shots...but alas....I'm not usually lucky.

Apart from the actual needle hurting when piercing the skin....the medication stings at first....then itches under your skin.

In addition to that......there is a TON of pressure at the injection site for the rest of the evening.

The first night my husband gave me the injection we were going out for the evening to meet up with family and take our coaches SUPing.  The entire night was just really uncomfortable for me.

Last night after the injection my husband encouraged me to take a nap because all I wanted to do after the shot was lie down.  I slept for an hour and felt good enough for us to take our coaches out for one last dinner and then when we got home I crashed.

Tonight we're driving an hour and a half into Mathews County for a crab-pickin dinner with friends.  We'll have to take the medications with us in a cooler and administer the injection at their house.

I'm hoping I don't feel too terrible since we'll be at someone elses house.

Wish me luck and more to follow!
