Is this a BIG problem re: PIO injections (Please Help - E & H and anyone who can weigh in)

2 things have been going on with my PIO injections. First, I have noticed that on one side, I often develop a lump by the morning. It is sore (just standing, it feels bad, but walking can get quite painful). Overall, it feels like a pretty badly pulled muscle. I thought I was doing what I could to reduce or eliminate pain and lumpiness after the shot. I use ice for nearly 10 minutes prior to my dh administering the shot. Afterward, he massages the area with a warm washcloth for about 5 minutes. But regardless, I still end up with the knot in the morning (again, only on the right side although I alternate sides daily).

My other concern is when my dh administered my shot on the right side, I have occasionally had a drip of PIO run down my upper hip after dh removes the syringe (once dh has administered the meds, he holds the syringe with the plunger pushed all the way in for a few extra seconds. . It has only happened maybe 3-times (I've been on PIO for just over 2 weeks), but of course I am concerned that the entire dose did not make it into my system.

Could this be a serious problem? I have been cheating and sneaking just a few hairs more that the 1 cc anyway, in hopes that will protect me.
