Ignore it: I doubt you injected it into a vein. It is more likely that the needle passed through a small vein and caused some bleeding. If nothing has happened by now, nothing will. ...Read more

I have been injecting suboxone for over 4 years. I hit my penis 3 days ago still swollen and the veins are swollen and very hard in forskin?

Watch, wait, & see..: May just watch, wait, & see as long as the pain and swelling are starting to ease and fade - taking 1-3 weeks or longer to resolve.

What if a blood vessel was hit when getting injected with Tdap vaccine? Would I be sick by now if i had gotten the vaccine in a vein??

Tdap injection: The deltoid muscle is the site of injection for Tdap and most other vaccines in adults. That area is chosen because there are no major veins or arteries in the vicinity.

What happens if I accidently hit a vein while giving myself my insulin injection for diabetes?

No big deal: This is actually not uncommon and it could happen to anyone. The simple answer is nothing major will happen to you if you do this. You most likely will have a small bruise. The Insulin also could "peak" quicker than before so it might be prudent to check your blood sugar more on the day that this happen. We give Insulin through the iv's quite frequently to treat hyperglycemia in the hospital. ...Read more

I hit a vein on my foot really hard and now it's bulging and getting really big. What is it, and should I be worried?

Trauma to veins: Trauma to veins can cause several problems including bleeding, swelling and discoloration around the injured area due to bleeding around the vein. Sometimes a vein injury will cause the valve in the vein to rupture leading to varicose vein formation or even to clotting of the vein. If you have a vein problem then see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation. ...Read more
