My final loading dose is tomorrow, and the doctor has said next shot will be in 3 months time. After reading many posts on this wonderful forum, I've decided to self inject as I really don't feel any better, and I'm sure I haven't had enough B12 to keep me going for so long.
My hydroxocobalamine ampoules have arrived from Germany, and I've ordered blue and green needles, syringes and swabs from Amazon, as recommended on a post here. My son, who's recently qualified as a nurse, is going to show me how to self inject subcutaneously, and I've been watching videos on You Tube. I thought I was almost all set to go!
But today he said that the needles used to draw the liquid from the ampoule should have a filter on them in case of broken glass. Is this right? He's newly qualified and recognises that he might be wrong, but I wondered please if anyone can advise me? And if I do need needles with filters, please can someone post a link to what I should get? The ampoules are the type where you have to snap the glass head off in order to get into them. I really don't want to be injecting slivers of glass, if this is a risk! Thanks!
