I messed up Stelara injection!

I inserted the needle into my son’s leg and when I pushed the plunger down all this liquid came up and pooled on his leg. I removed the needed and reinserted to complete the injection. Quite a bit of liquid was pooled on top of his leg and I would say he only got about 1/2 of the dose. I’m upset and was wondering what we should do. I’ve left messages for his doc so waiting. Has this happened to anyone else?
Oh no! My husband has taken a few Stelara injections but this has not happened to him.

Have you heard back from the doctor yet?
