My first Sandostatin Shot!

I went to SF for my first 10mg Sandostatin shot. Yay!! My Dr says since my GH was so close to normal, and my last IGF-1 was about 370, he doesn't think I'll need to go over the 10mg Sandostatin, but we'll see in a couple months.

It was all easier than my scary imaginings :-) I imagined a HUGE needle and that it would hurt really badly. But it was very quick and felt like a normal shot. I also have to remember to call an hour before each injection appointment so they can take the medication out of the fridge. Oh yeah, and Dr told me to stay away from fatty foods so I don't get gallstones.
