User :   hello
Doctor :   hi
User :   i don't know if i spoke with you few minutes ago.... anyway here's the problem: i've made an intromuscular testovis injection (in the buttock) by myself 4 hours ago. Now, i'm not sure about the correct procedure for "how to make an injection". I didn't "suck back" to see some blood if i hited accidentaly some vein. How long i have to wait to be save by an oily embolism? How many ml of an oily solution can a vein transport without risk of an oily embolism?
Doctor :   how can I help you?
User :   sorry for my english, is not my native language
Doctor :   ok
User :   i know about the risk of an oily solution just now!
User :   but i know that to hit a vein is also rare
User :   can you answer to my questions?
User :   ?
Doctor :   the amount that a vein can carry will depend on the size of the vein
User :   ok, but i'm nervous about it... can i take it easy?

Doctor :   wher you injected
