When I got my first pens last week the pharmacy gave me these giant 1/2 in 29 gauge needles. Every injection was another bruise, sometimes with bleeding after injection. After Kristin on this site kindly told me there were different sizes I called doc and asked for the 5/16 which were the same as my old syringes. Instead I got the 3/16 31 gauge. They seem to work fine but are so tiny I laugh everytime I put one on.
Hi Kathleen! Glad that you got smaller needles Better to be laughing than crying!
