Re: [IP] Got a question about a site



You may want to try your hips or thighs.  Since I tried those, I rarely, if
ever use my abdomen.  The other sites seem to be less sensitive, except for
the thighs, that seem to require changing sooner.  For instance, I like to
change my site every 3 days, but on occasion I have gone 4 days on my hips,
but then 2 1/2 days on my thighs.  My thighs seem to need changing sooner,
though I'm not sure why.  The hip area seems to be able to take it longer,
and the marks heal up quicker. YMMV.
