Hi there. I had to use fragmin for a few days. My little man is now 10 weeks. But I've just noticed a pea sized lump under the skin where the injections went in. Has anyone else got this : (

No my little girls 4 weeks and I haven't got any lasting marks from the injections, however my friend had a little lump from everyone.
They disappeared after about 3 months tho

You were supposed to inject each one in a different place to reduce the chance of a reaction/problem, did you do this? If not it's probably a temporary thing but get an appointment with your GP to check it out and find out if there's anything you can do to shift it in the meantime.

Saw GP today. It's a bruise from the fragmin. Will take another two months to go. I only had four injections whilst ik the hospital. I didn't use them at home. Thanks for posting. I've got great diastasis as well. Good job my little man is gorgeous!!!

I'm a nurse, we use fragmin on every patient, yes it's normal but do not rub it after injection as it'll leave a nasty purple ring
