Re: [IP] weight gain at infusion site?



I have lost weight since 2010, when I retired.  However, I noticed that I
too have developed a beer belly.  No, I don't drink beer.  There has been
so much talk about scar tissue, that I believe that must be the case.  I
have been pumping since 2000 mostly in my stomach and abdomen.
