    I have DVT and HATE THIS MEDICATION!!! Why? Because the delivery method is sadistic and barbaric! I am able to give myself daily injections of Forteo (for osteoporosis)because it uses ultra-fine 31 guage needles, so I DO know how to do subcutaneous injections. But the (only available) needle on the Lovenox product is large, incredibly painful, and leaves HUGE painful bruises, whether it is a nur ... Show Full Comment

Would like to speak to someone born without an IVC. I am 44 years old and would like to know what to expect in the future. I've been hospitalized 2 times in the last 8 months due to DVTs. The Lovenox seems to ... Show Full Comment
