Re: [IP] tubing length question


I prefer the 24 inch tubing.  It's just less to deal with.  I usually insert in 
the abdomen on buttocks and the length is sufficient.  The only problem is if 
the pumps drops to the ground when I'm wearing it, then the length is too short 
and I had the injection site actually come out on me once.  


I have a three month supply of the .... what is it... 48 inch tube.
My trainer said you could get a shorter tube.  (24" ?)

What are the pros and cons of the various lengths?
