Four years ago I went to a doctor who suggested that I take the HCG injections to lose weight. I was told I'd lose 1 to 2 pounds per day and that there was zero problems associated with the injections and it was 100% safe. Within several weeks I began having extremely bad pain in one foot and leg, could barely walk , my one foot swelled up and was very red.
I ended up having four angioplasty surgeries, had a blood clot, had to have a stent put in the lower leg and a mesh in the upper leg. Since then I have never been able to return to work due to peripheral arterial disease, and now have peripheral neuropathy.
I would never recommend to anyone to take those injections to lose weight, no matter what any medical professional says. My life and the job I loved came to a complete stop because of me taking the advise of a doctor.
