Re: [IP] Changing site

I pretty much always use the upper tum. I have too many stretch marks
and blue veins from pregnancy to feel comfortable using the lower tum. I
once tried the thigh, but it hurt too much. I also tried the top of the
breast, but didn't like that, either. I've never tried arms.

I typically change every 3 days, but if a site looks good (i.e. not
red), doesn't itch or hurt, I'll let it go a day longer. Any longer than
four days and I start to get pus and skin deterioration around the
catheter, so I don't do it.
