I was given Clexane to take home with me after a total Knee replacement, I had to get my husband to do the injections as I was not brave enough to do them (I explained this to them in hospital), they are not pleasant to do and they did sting a bit afterwards. Are they worth taking yes if they stop blood clots.

I had to self inject for 28 days after having a total hysterectomy. At first I was very nervous to do this as I am not good with needles but after a few days of the district nurse having to come and do this I decided I just had to do it and it was fine. It's a very fine needle and did not hurt at all, it's. it something I looked forward to doing but that was more to do with the idea of it rather than how it felt. I had a small bleed from the scar 1 week after my op but other than that no side effects.

Following full knee replacement, I was given injection into stomach I believe to stop blood clots, I was asked if I would be able to do myself, after doing for two evenings in hospital, I took 20 home to continue taking before going to sleep.

Clexane was prescribed to be taken by injection for 28 days after bowel surgery. It was prescribed to reduce risk of blood clots after surgery. A nurse in hospital showed me the correct procedure for self injection (into the stomach) and thereafter I was on my own. Initially there is a slight squeamishness about self injection but after a few days, you get used to it and just close your eyes and prod! I now realise that I could never become a drug addict!
